About Paul VI High School Girls’ Basketball Program
The Paul VI (PVI) Catholic High School Girls’ Basketball Program is one of the top programs in the nation, successfully competing in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC), the leading high school basketball conference in America, and in the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA).
The Lady Panthers had a remarkable 2012-13 season. They finished with a 29-4 record, which included a 23-game winning streak. Their performance garnered national attention and major news organizations covered the program and followed the team. During the season, the USA Today had PVI ranked as high as sixth in the nation. They were also top ten in the ESPN National Girls' Basketball Rankings, top ten in Max Preps National Rankings, number one in the Washington Post and ranked number one in the state of Virginia
PVI ended the regular WCAC season with a second place tie and won their seventh straight VISAA state championship, setting a state and national record. Since its inception in 1995, PVI has won 14 VISAA state championships the last 19 seasons.
The PVI girls' basketball program consists of three teams: varsity, junior varsity and freshmen. During the 2012-13 season, the combined record for all three teams was an impressive 65-11.
The girls’ basketball program is led by Scott Allen. Coach Allen joined PVI in 2002, and has coached the varsity girls’ to nine VISAA state championships. Coach Allen has also been named VISAA girls’ basketball coach of the year an unprecedented seven times. Due to PVI’s outstanding performance in 2012-13, Coach Allen was nominated National High School Coach of the Year.
Coach Allen and the PVI basketball program are committed to providing opportunities for student athletes to demonstrate their basketball skills to college coaches. To this end, Coach Allen has organized the D.C. Metro College Showcase. The Showcase is sanctioned by the NCAA and enables players to gain exposure with college coaches from across the country. This annual event has evolved into one of the top college recruiting events on the East Coast.
The PVI basketball program is dedicated to introducing children to the sport of basketball and helping them develop their skills. Each year, PVI organizes the Paul VI Girls & Boys Summer Basketball Camps, which are open to children of all skills level. The camps are designed to introduce the game, teach the fundamentals, improve playing skills and have fun. To date, more than 400 campers have participated in the summer program.
PVI players excel in the classroom and on the basketball court. They receive a well-rounded education from a top rated high school which prepares them for success in college and beyond. PVI was recognized by The Cardinal Newman Society as one of the Top 50 Catholic High Schools in the nation. http://www.paulvi.net/Top50 The school has a comprehensive curriculum designed to meet the entrance requirements of leading universities. The curriculum includes college courses and an advance placement program (AP).
