    Head Coach: Emily Roller

    The Cushing girls’ basketball program is a program rich in tradition and success; a tradition of excellence in performance, sportsmanship, and player development and success in both team and individual achievement.  Playing a competitive Class B schedule that also includes games against some of the best Class A programs in New England – Phillips Exeter, Worcester Academy, Northfield Mt. Hermon, and Buckingham Brown and Nichols among others – Cushing has qualified for the New England tournament ten of the last twelve years.  Progressing to the semi-finals or finals five of those years, the Penguins emerged in 2007 as New England champions.  
     
    Cushing employs an aggressive, up-tempo style of play that involves a full complement of players, not only the starters.  Approaching the teaching of basketball from a holistic perspective, Cushing’s coaches emphasize not just team execution but also individual skills development, an understanding of larger game concepts, and the development of sportsmanship and leadership.  Over the past fifteen years these goals have served Cushing’s girls well.  Whether you aspire to play in college or are relatively new to the sport, there is a place for you in our program.
     
    A review of past rosters highlights the many and varied accomplishments of the young women who have competed as members of the Cushing girls’ basketball program: over a dozen graduates going on to play at the collegiate level, many multi-sport athletes and honors list students, multiple campus leaders, and numerous winners of some of the school’s most prestigious awards.  The ethos of our program asks each girl to focus not only on achieving success in basketball but also to committing herself to the larger values of the school community and to achieving the best of which she is capable in all areas of school life.  Again, this focus has served Cushing’s young women exceptionally well.  
     
    The 2016-17 season marked the beginning of a new era in Cushing basketball. With the opening of the new Watkins Field House, Cushing will now plays its home games in a state-of-the-art facility. Additionally, as Coach Roller and Coach Bala begin their second decade working together, the experience and stability they bring to the program provide a strong foundation for future growth and success.
