Providence Country Day School Names Serenna Sousa ’23 of East Providence Athlete of the Week
East Providence Resident Serenna Sousa '23, captain and defensive stalwart on the Providence Country Day middle school girls basketball team, finds a way to help her team win. If they need a key basket, she steps up. However, her biggest impact is on defense. She is seen sprinting from the offensive end of the floor and getting back to defend and break up a fast break. She leads the team in steals averaging five per game, and often must guard the opponent's best ball handler. She was instrumental in the win against Barrington Christian Academy, where she shut down their top scorer, and helped lead her team to an 18-15 win. When asked about her attitude and effort on the court, Coach Parsons mentions that "while she is a pretty good ball handler and shooter, her defense is where she makes the biggest impact. She always gives 110% when she's on the court and elevates the play of her teammates around her."
