MMA welcomed one of our own back home: Agnes Irwin head coach Shanette Lee '95. Merion's assistant basketball coach and former teammate Missy (Light '94) Dougherty said, "Shanette was one of the catalysts behind the MMA basketball program's emergence in the mid 1990's which reached its apex in 1995 as the Golden Bears captured the PIAA state title. Shanette went on to a storied career at Villanova where she became Big 5 Rookie of the Year in 95-96, and later became the all-time assist leader in the history of the program before becoming a fixture on the coaching staff for 20-plus years." Merion finished with Varsity and JV wins over the Owls (Varsity: 48-33, JV: 28-19).
