About Our Girls’ Basketball Program

Basketballs In High School Gym

Coached by Dawn Karpell, the Girls Basketball program has been long esteemed for its excellence – especially since 1991, when the team earned its place in the Saint John Vianney High School Hall of Fame. Coach Karpell challenges each individual to succeed, not only on a personal level but in terms of teamwork as well.

Strength and Conditioning

The SJVHS Girls Basketball Team takes advantage of our strength and conditioning program to keep its athletes at the top of their game.

This program trains in strength, mobility, speed, agility, and plyometrics. It challenges every part of a student athlete’s ability, helping them reach their full potential on the court and beyond.

A Philosophy of Personal Growth

As a Catholic school, we encourage every student to cultivate their own growth in every area, whether academic, social, physical, emotional, or spiritual. Our sports programs always play a vital part in this mission. To us, basketball isn’t just a game. It’s an opportunity for students to learn, evolve as individuals, and become positively impactful adults.

On the court, the Girls Basketball team will learn the fundamentals of commitment, strategy, and team cooperation. These values contribute to their social and emotional development. Not only that, but they’ll also be essential to the student-athletes’ success both now and after graduation. As students go on to pursue higher education and meaningful careers, the skills they learned on the court will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
