Anything but a Rebuilding Season for BVT Girls Hoops

Head coach Brit Kahler thought her team might be heading into a bit of a rebuilding phase this year, but the Blackstone Valley Tech girls basketball team was anything but rebuilding this season. The Beavers finished 13-9 overall and 11-5 in the Colonial Athletic League. They were also able to qualify for the state vocational tournament and advance to the quarterfinals of the Central Mass division 4 tournament.
"I thought we did well and the postseason was good to us," Kahler said. "I think we exceeded expectations."
BVT was led by senior guard Meghan McFadden, who averaged 12.5 points per game, the fourth highest total in the CAL. Fellow senior Domenique Silvestri averaged nearly seven points per game and worked with McFadden to bring a strong leadership quality to the floor. "Meghan was a leader when she stepped on the floor freshman year and has always been a leader by example," Kahler said. "Domenique was a bit more quiet but the hardest working kid I have had in awhile."
Seniors Brianna Morais and Samantha Chamberlain were also consistent producers for the Beavers and aided McFadden and Silvestri, who have been on the varsity level for the past four seasons under Kahler. "They've been instrumental in our success over the past four years," the head coach said. "We've been to the district finals, been to the state vocational tournament, won the league twice, and had a big year this year. I am really thankful we have had those two."
Valley Tech closed out the regular season with a pair of wins to earn the spot in the voke tournament. The Beavers fell to Greater New Bedford in the tournament's opening round, but rebounded for a 49-29 victory over Advanced Math and Science in the opening game of the district tournament. A 63-38 loss to Greater Lowell brought the season to an end, but the future looks promising with a number of talented young players set to return for next year.
"We called up freshman guard Isabella Angelini during the season and she was huge for us the rest of the year," Kahler said. "She was a scorer and rebounder and she must have gotten five steals per game. She is going to be a very good basketball player."
Valley Tech will also return sophomore Shea Boultenhouse, a nearly six-foot forward who helped in both scoring and rebounding.
"This was a hard working, coachable group and they continue to get better and better," Kahler said. "We are young and I am looking forward to the next couple of years. We are only going to get better."
