The last time the Upper Perkiomen girls basketball team had a winning season, none of the current Indians players had even been born.
With more than a third of this year already in the books, however, the Indians have made a pretty regular habit of enjoying the sweet taste of success.
Heading into Thursday’s Quakertown Tournament opener against William Tennent, Upper Perkiomen is off to a 6-2 start, and has gone 3-1 in the Frontier Division.
“There have been a number of factors that have finally come together,” Indians coach Pete Sovia said. “But the biggest, by far, is the commitment to excellence by the core group of players in the program.”
That core is led by the senior co-captain duo of Stacey Auckland and Dani Moser. Auckland, a 5-foot-10 power forward and four-year starter who has an outside shot at 1,000 career points, leads the team with a 13.1 scoring average.
