Cape Elizabeth's girls' basketball season ended in the Western Class B quarterfinals Tuesday with a 67-39 loss to second-ranked Leavitt.
But Coach Chris Roberts couldn't be more pleased with her team's season. The Capers started two freshmen (Mary Perkins and Kate Miklavic) and a sophomore (Marlo Dell'Aquila), but finished 9-10.
"I'm thrilled for the kids," said Roberts. "It's been 15 years since they've been on a tournament floor like this. And it's the experience.
"It's kind of, hopefully, they've got a taste of what it's about and they come back next year and think, getting there isn't good enough. But I'm thrilled."
RICK CLARK, the York girls' coach, gave an assist to his wife, Lauren, after the Wildcats beat Gray-New Gloucester 55-14.
It seems the Wildcats' bus didn't show up at the school to take the team to Portland. So Lauren Clark drove to Wells, got a school bus and got the Wildcats to Portland.Tweet
