The Oakland Catholic girls are off to a 15-2 start under new coach Eddie Benton. The former Perry and University of Vermont standout has spent more than twenty years as an assistant or head coach at the collegiate level – and is at the high school level for the first time.
“I’m doing the same exact stuff I did at the college level now. I’m just bringing a college approach to Oakland Catholic,” Benton said. “My style is a lot different than what they’re used to. So I didn’t know how quickly they were going to buy into change, but they surprised me. They bought in right away.
“They’re playing extremely hard, they’re very coachable, and I couldn’t ask for a better group of girls.”
