FRAMINGHAM – Framingham High girls basketball team will be looking to make the playoffs in the 2022-23 season led by their captains Selina Monestime and Katie Regan.

During the 2015-2016 hoop season, the girls varsity program went 0-20.

In 2016, in came head coach Kristen Audet-Fucarile, and the Flyers went 5-15 her inaugural season.

In her fourth season, they went 10-10, and made the playoffs.

Last year, the team was 13-7 in the regular season, and qualified for the playoffs.

While the program is on the climb, numbers are still low. (There are more than 2,500 students at Framingham High.)

Just 31 girls tried out this season, with 10 making the varsity squad.

The Flyers will open the season at home on Friday, December 9 against Attleboro High at 6:30 p.m.

Monestime and Regan will lead the team off and on the court. They are also the only two seniors on varsity.

“Selina is a tremendous leader. She works hard to push herself and teammates to their potential. She is coming off a solid junior year and has committed to University of Albany next season,” said her head coach.

“Selina has mentored many girls in the program and continues to enjoy the leadership role on our team. Selina is a phenomenal athlete and very coachable. She is going to be a player to watch this winter,” said Audet-Fucarile.

“Katie leads by example. She only accepts 110% effort and energy from herself and teammates,” said her coach.

“Katie came off a tough injury her junior year and was an explosive player on her return to the court. It was like the kid didn’t miss a beat. She also is a strong mentor to the youth of Framingham and a highly respected senior,” said Coach Audet-Fucarile. “She is committed to Western New England University next year. She will also be a player to watch this season.” 

“Selina and Katie” are the returning top scorers, “followed by Sophomore Allie Regan who averaged 10 points a game. A few games scoring over 20. She is not a flashy player, yet the player that doesn’t cut corners. She has a flow about her game that is smooth. Her ability to finish with speed is a skill we are lucky to have in our starting five,” said Coach Audet-Fucarile.

“Monestime is a force on defense,” said her coach. “Her ability to read the court and anticipate opponents’ next moves is impressive. She will often block or intercept passes. She is a strong player that has a lot of control to her body in how she maneuvers  around the court.”

Coach Audet-Fucarile said “I love this program and have been enjoying the ride these young ladies are on. They set the pace by their ability to organize and set goals in the off season. They were often together at Pain University with a great skills coach in town Clay Howard. Alumni Leah Douty also did an amazing job inspiring this group to make their fitness a priority. Preventing injuries and strength training was key! The Framingham community is positive and pushing for these ladies to be successful on and off the court.”
