Future Looking Bright for the Lady Lancers Basketball

The Londonderry High School Girls’ Basketball ball team has a lot of potential heading into the 2024-25 season.
The team was still very young this year, losing just one player to graduation, and the Lady Lancers still came away with receiving the third seed in Division I State Championship, making it to the semifinals.
If the team has all their players return next season, they will end up with six senior players and four juniors.
The squad certainly was head and shoulders above most of their DI rivals, winning 16 of the 18 regular season games and two of three in the playoffs, but fell to Pinkerton Academy in the semifinals.
Varsity head coach, Jon Doherty, knew getting by the Astros was going to be tough, but was impressed with the growth of the team this year.
Doherty said, “I felt this season went about as expected, very young, a lot of growth was shown, but a lot more needs to be done in order for us to get to UNH. I bring back 11 of 12 players and have a couple exciting young players coming up into the system as well. I am looking forward to getting this team as much adversity in the off-season as possible. Future is bright and I am excited to get things going.”
The team’s starters put up some impressive numbers, averaging about 60-points per game, but the titling-winning team from Bedford High School had nearly a 70-point average.
As far as individual stats this season, sophomore standout Samantha Sullivan led her team in scoring. In her 17 games, Sullivan had a total of 312-points, averaging 18.4 points per game and had a 31-point game for her season high.
Fellow sophomore, Brooke Eacrett, played in 18-games with a season total of 214-points, averaging 11.9 points per game. Eacrett had a 20-point season high game.
Freshman guard, Gemma Murray, scored a total of 159-points in the 18 games she played in, finishing with 7.1 points per game. Murray had a 21-point season high game.
Junior guard, Reagan Anderson, averaged 4.7 points per game in her 18 appearances, scoring a total of 85-points this season.
Junior guard, Kate Sloper, appeared in 15 games and averaged 4.7 points per game, scoring a total of 70-points.
Londonderry had three players chosen by the New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization for their outstanding season. Sullivan was named to the state’s First Team, while Eacrett and Anderson were given Honorable Mention.
