Sewanhaka keeps the ball rolling
(Page 2 of 2)

Sewanhaka's Shantell McCall, left, scoops in two of her 12 points during a 54-49 victory over Hewlett on Jan. 8.

McCall, who leads the team with 12 points per game, has been a rock for Sewanhaka. A switch from guard to forward has not only enabled McCall to attack defenses from a different vantage point, it’s allowed her to be a presence on the offensive boards, and to set up teammates for easy looks in the paint. Jenny Pechacek has come alive of late for the Lady Indians. The junior guard has scored 10 points in back-to-back games. 

Soupios believes much of the credit for Sewanhaka’s success should go to its feeder program, the St. Vincent de Paul CYO. “Nearly every girl on the team started out playing ball at St. Vincent,” Soupios said. “Without the support of the local CYO program, there’s no way that we would we having as much success as we’ve had. It’s a very important part of our program’s growth. I’m very fortunate and grateful to have a strong feeder program.”

The Lady Indians host Great Neck North this Friday at 4:30 p.m.
