22/23 Varsity: North Celebrates Seniors Before Final Loss of the Season Against Attleboro, 36-65

Friday, February 17, 2023

Excerpt from hockomocksports.com: Ava McKeon tried to keep North in the game with seven of her team-high 15 in the opening quarter. Attleboro scored 14 in the second, while holding North to just six. The Rocketeers tried battle back in the fourth with 17 points as a team, including six more from McKeon and all three of Ella McLaughlin’s points in the game. Sam Sweeney added 8 points for the Rocketeers.

From The Sun Chronicle: Despite the loss, Correia said that the pregame recognition for her senior trio took some of the sting out of the final score.

“I can’t say enough about all three of them,” Correia said. “I’ve been here eight years, but it started four years ago when I joined varsity. (Ava McKeon) started with me, and I brought her up as a freshman to varsity. She does everything on the floor. Emma, played JV until last year, and she does everything I asked of her. You wouldn’t see it in the stat sheet, but she was the one going for the ball and doing the little extra things we needed.

“Kylie James was another girl who came into varsity this year and sometimes didn’t get in all the time I’d like to get her in, but when she did, she fought hard and worked hard. Three great kids. They’re going to really be missed.”

The Lady Rocketeers end the season 6-10 in league play and 6-14 overall.
