Valley Tech Girls Earn Second Seed In Districts

The Blackstone Valley Tech girls' basketball team earned the number two seed in the Central Mass Division 3 after an 18-3 campaign that included an appearance in the state vocational tournament.
Brit Kahler's squad rolled through league play with a 15-1 record. The Beavers shared the league title, splitting with Main South who also finished 15-1. Main South was 19-1 overall to secure the top seed in the districts, but BVT figures to have a great deal of confidence should the two teams meet in the tournament. Main South handed BVT its first loss of the season back in late December, a 52-37 final. But Valley Tech bounced back with a decisive 60-29 win at home at the end of January, the only defeat Main South suffered in the regular season.
The Main South win was part of a 13 game winning streak for BVT that ended with a 42-41 loss to Douglas. The only other defeat for the Beavers came in the state vocational tournament, where they fell to perennial powerhouse Greater New Bedford 61-59 in the semifinals. Valley Tech trailed by as many as 12 in the game, but rallied behind 26 points and 10 rebounds by junior Ashley Thompson. Thompson led the team with 14 points per game and scored in double figures in all but three games in which she played this season.
Sophomore Meghan McFadden averaged 10 points per game and poured in a season high 21 in a Valentine's Day win over Assebet. Senior Kaitlin Hannon has been one of the team's stronger players down the stretch. She is averaging close to nine points per game for the season, but scored in double figures in six of the last seven games to close out the regular season. The run started with a 22 point outburst against Main South, and included 15 points against Douglas and 13 against Greater New Bedford. Senior Kelley Ney has six double-digit scoring efforts in the second half of the season. She scored a season-high 18 points in a win over Worcester Tech and added 14 point games against Main South and Assabet.
When the MIAA released the Central Mass Girls Division 3 pairings, 20 teams had qualified for the district tournament. As the second seed, the Beavers bypassed the preliminary round and were scheduled to host a first round game against the winner of AMSA and Whitinsville Christian. Should Valley Tech advance, it would host a quarterfinal game tomorrow.
