As the Arete Prep Girls Varsity Basketball team travels to Duncan, AZ today, they will look to set a new program record for wins in a season. They equaled the current mark (12) on Wednesday, with a 39-14 region win vs. NFL YET. The team’s current record is 12-4, which includes a third place finish in the Chandler Prep New Years Classic. The Chargers are also looking to qualify for their first AIA State Tournament, and with a strong region finish, should do so. The team is led by Coach Jake Howell, and Captains Mariah Dominguez and Hannah Howell.
Point guard Dominguez (2nd team all region as a freshman in ’19) is averaging double figures and provides the Chargers with a strong court sense. Fellow sophomore Alissa Kassebaum is a double double threat who was also a 2nd team all region performer as a freshman in ’19. With the deepest bench in team history and a strong group of freshmen, the future looks bright for Arete Prep girls basketball!
The next home date is 1/28 vs. region leading Fort Thomas.
