2021-2022 DME Girls’ Basketball Program Named Top 25 in the Country

The season has only just begun, but the hype around the 2021-2022 DME Girls’s Basketball Program continues to grow. With a top-tier roster, and experienced coaching staff, the team’s pre-season ranking sets them up for an exciting year ahead!

Earlier this month, MaxPreps released their Preseason Top 25, listing DME Girls Basketball at number 16 in the country. It should come as no surprise that this esteemed ranking comes shortly after three DME Girls’’ Basketball student-athletes were named to ESPN’s Top 100 Girls to watch.  Seniors Sydney Shaw (ranked #49) and Amiya Evans (ranked #65), along with junior Chloe Kitts (ranked #16) hope to lead DME to a memorable season!

DME basketball has a strong reputation rooted in NBA experience stemming from Co-Founder Dan Panaggio’s experience on the coaching staff with the Portland Trailblazer and Los Angeles Lakers. And, with the belief of creating a supportive, close-knit community on and off the court, this team has drawn the attention of people across the country. The ranking as the number 16 team in the country speaks for itself!

Wesley Arocho, head coach of the girls’ basketball team,  spoke to their success saying, “Each player works hard in practice to take their game to the next level. They play as a team each and every game, and their determination and dedication are paying off.”. 

DME will be up against some stiff competition throughout the 2021-2022 season, including games against IMG Academy, Montverde Academy, and Lake Highland Prep to name a few, but they’re up for the challenge.  They are a force to be reckoned with this season and are prepared to compete with some of the top teams in the nation.

Be on the lookout for some can’t-miss action as the DME Girls’ Basketball team comes to a court near you! The chase is on for the #1 spot in America.
