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 country. They are a member of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC), the nation’s most competitive high school basketball conference and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA).  

The 2013-14 season was historic for the Lady Panthers. They were crowned WCAC regular season champions, WCAC tournament champions and captured their eighth consecutive VISAA division one state championship – achieving a record 15 Virginia state championships in the last 20 years. The Lady Panthers were nationally ranked by The USA Today, ESPN National Girls’ Basketball Rankings, Max Preps all-USA Ranking, Washington Post Prep Ranking and number one in Virginia by VISAA. 

PVI finished the 2013-14 season with a 29-5 record. They played one of the most difficult game schedules in the country by competing against nationally ranked teams in the prestigious Naples Holiday Shootout Tournament in FL, The Rose Classic in New York City, Art Turner Memorial Tip Off Showcase in Fairfax, VA, and top teams in the WCAC.    

The girls' basketball program consists of three teams: varsity, junior varsity and freshmen.  For a second year in a row, the combined record for all three teams was an impressive 65-11.  The program is led by Scott Allen. Coach Allen joined PVI in 2002, and has coached the varsity girls to one WCAC championship and ten VISAA state championships. He has also been named VISAA girls’ basketball coach of the year an unprecedented seven times and 2013 Russell Athletic/Women's Basketball Coaches Association District Coach of the Year. 

Coach Allen is committed to helping student athletes play at the collegiate level so they can achieve their academic and athletic goals. He founded the annual D.C. Metro College Showcase. This event is sanctioned by the NCAA and enables players to highlight their skills and gain exposure with college coaches from across the country. The Showcase has evolved into one of the top college recruiting events on the East Coast.   

PVI is also very active in introducing children to the sport of basketball. Coach Allen organizes the Paul VI Girls & Boys Summer Basketball Camps, which are open to children of all skills level. The camps are designed to teach the fundamentals, improve skills and have fun. To date, more than 500 campers have participated in the 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's curriculum includes dual enrollment college courses and an advance placement program (AP). On average, AP scores earned by PVI students were approximately 20% higher than those of Fairfax County Public High School students. Over the past 5 years, PVI has numerically benchmarked its college acceptance rates and has virtually a 100% acceptance rate when compared to like students in other private and public schools.
