Basketball history was made on December 21, 2019 as the Koalas defeated Albertus Magnus 63-58 and Coach Beth Wooters ‘80 earned her 600th career victory at The Ursuline School!
The historic win was achieved in the opening round of the Slam Dunk Tournament at the Westchester County Center. Sonia Citron had 26 points and 15 rebounds, Alexa Mustafaj scored 16 points, Meghan Casey contributed 11 points, and Fiona Mills had 5 points and 7 rebounds.
The Journal News reported that “Ursuline played with purpose and gave coach Beth Wooters a milestone win.” Coach Wooters said, “Getting it here, I mean, what better venue is there. And to get it playing a team like Albertus, that is the exciting thing. We really had to work to get it. I was hoping the girls didn’t know about it, but they did. It just means a lot to do it here with our friends and supporters.” More Journal News reporting is HERE.
We congratulate Coach Beth Wooters and all the players who contributed to this accomplishment over four decades!
And the basketball success continued after the 600th win. The Koalas played with intensity all weekend and won the tournament, beating Hastings 83-45 in the championship game.
