(March 14, 2013) The girls junior varsity basketball team finished the season 11-2 overall, and 6-0 in Cape & Islands League play. With a team stacked 14 deep, the young Whalers ranged from girls who had never before touched a basketball to those who have played since elementary school at the Boys & Girls Club.
The Whalers started strong, winning their first six games over both league and nonleague opponents. Nantucket opened its season by beating Sturgis East 36-11 at home, followed by non-league wins over Monomoy 37-26 and Mashpee 31-15. A narrow 26-24 victory over league rival Pope John Paul would follow.
