Varsity Girls’ Basketball
Cheshire Academy is a team on the rise in New England. The Cats reached their first New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class B tournament in school history last season and won the inaugural New England Girls Basketball League title in 2017-18.
The Cats play a competitive 20-plus game schedule with home games played at Arthur Sheriff Field House. Student-athletes have gone on to play at Virginia Tech, and Franklin Pierce, professionally, and in the Olympics.
Jeff Allen, who helped St. John’s reach the Sweet 16 in 1983 and played professionally in Europe, coaches the Cats. The program focuses on the importance of being a good teammate and devotes practice time to developing individual skills.
