SCITUATE – Down a few players and coaches, the undefeated Ponaganset High girls’ basketball team used its speed and scoring ability to dominate neighboring Scituate, 72-43, on Monday night in their Division I meeting on the Spartans’ court.

The Chieftains only dressed eight players for this matchup, but all of them contributed to the scoring and three scored in double digits. Junior guard Julia Castelli led everyone with 21 points, sophomore guard Jaina Yekelchik added 14, and her classmate, Ella Pierre-Louis, had 13. Also each adding nine points were seniors Campbell Boyden and Jessica Hassell.

  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
