Basketball - Varsity
Walker’s basketball program prides itself on being a competitive member of both the Founders League as well as Class “C” of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Conference (NEPSAC).
Walker's maintains a schedule that balances competitiveness and fun team experiences. Competing against larger schools like Choate, Westminster and Kent in the Founders League, Walker’s also competes against other Class “C” schools like Westover, Wilbraham & Monson and Canterbury. Walker's hosts an annual Holiday Tournament where they ask seven other schools to campus to participate in a two-day, three-game tournament. Walker's won the tournament in 2019. Walker's also traveled to Boston for an overnight trip in the 2018-2019 campaign, attending a Tufts women's basketball game one evening and playing Rye Country Day at Emmanuel College the next morning.
Walker’s basketball program continues to grow stronger each year by putting an emphasis on recruiting strong students and athletes, and by developing these talented individuals into young women who are strong in the classroom as well as on the basketball court. Students have moved on from Walker's to participate in collegiate programs.
Basketball players are encouraged to participate in basketball outside of Walker’s athletic program. Students in the past have participated in college showcases and various camps around the area. Students are also encouraged to participate in AAU programs when possible in order to gain more interest from college coaches.
Coach John Monagan enters his 12th year coaching the varsity team. The team is a four-time participant in the competitive NEPSAC Tournament, including a trip to the quarterfinals in 2019.
