Eagles kick off new era of hoops

SHEFFIELD — When the Mt. Everett girls’ basketball team walked off the floor of the Curry Hicks Cage last March after falling to Hopkins in the sectional final, it was not just the end of a successful season. No, it was the end of a couple of eras in the program’s history.

Seniors Gwendolyn Carpenter, Madison Ullrich and Marion Devoti played their final game in blue and gold, closing a chapter in Sheffield that saw the team reach at least the sectional semifinal in three of four years and the only year the Eagles missed, Carpenter – the all-time leading scorer in Berkshire County history – missed the end of the season.

Also departing was coach Scott Rote, who had patrolled the sideline for Mt. Everett for the previous 18 seasons, gone to retirement and leaving the Eagles to wander into their new era with a new face on the end of the bench for the first time since before anyone on the current roster was born.
