Lady Comets, Nassau County Conference AA Basketball Champs
When the Hicksville High School Varsity Girls Basketball Team began practicing in mid-November 2006, they had a good idea that their team had strong players, spirit and the will to succeed in the face of any challenges they would encounter. Little did they know how deep they would need to reach into their hearts, minds, and bodies, however, as their competition season unfolded. What distinguishes any good team from a great team is often not at all about points and titles earned, but about the values, honor, compassion, sportsmanship and dignity they bring to the sport. This season, the Hicksville Varsity Girls Basketball Team truly proved what a great team they are.
