Varsity Girls Basketball Team

Girls Basketball 2016-2017 Review

After suffering heavy graduation losses from last season’s 24-win team, the girls basketball team navigated injuries and one of the 20-most difficult schedules in the state to post a 17-9 record. In the process, the Lady Rebels extended their streak of seasons with 16 wins or more to nine. Only six girls basketball programs in Indiana have an active streak of at least nine seasons of 16 wins or more.

The Lady Rebels captured the inaugural Circle City Conference title with a perfect 6-0 league record. They won the Scott Bostick Memorial Holiday Tournament with wins over Crispus Attucks and the host Covenant Christian. They advanced to the final of the Marion County Tournament for the third straight season and the fourth time in five seasons. The Lady Rebels fell in the final top-ranked North Central, but upset sixth-ranked Ben Davis 49-44 to reach the final.

The team won six games at the end of the season, including wins over Center Grove and Columbus North, who were both state ranked. Roncalli’s season ended in an overtime loss to Pike (55-53) in the sectional semifinal round. Pike, who beat Roncalli by 24 points early in the season, went on to advance to the Class 4A state final. Six teams on Roncalli’s schedule reached at least the regional final (final eight) in their respective classes.

Seniors Paige Saylor and Claire Whalen concluded their Roncalli careers. Saylor was named the team’s MVP and Whalen won the mental attitude award. Whalen was also named Academic All-State, while Saylor was honorable mention Academic All-State. Saylor was named All-Marion County and All-Circle City Conference. Juniors Ellie Bischoff and Lauren Fey joined Saylor on the all-conference team.

Saylor, who appeared in 98 varsity games over four seasons, finished as the program’s career assist leader with 419. Only two players in program history have played in more games than Saylor. She is the only player in program history with over 400 assists and 300 steals (314). She played in 75 victories, which ranks third in program history.

Bischoff established new school records for most 3-pointers in a game (nine) and most 3-pointers in a single-season (65). Bischoff was the only player to play in and start all 26 games. Sophomore Anna Bauer was the only other player to play in every game. Fey started all 25 games in which she appeared and ranked second on the team in assists and steals. Freshman Alana Vinson averaged 11 points per game, which is the third-highest freshman scoring average in the last decade, and led the team in rebounding (5.4 rpg).
