About the PVI Girls’ Basketball Program
PVI girls’ basketball is a one of the top programs in the country. They are members 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 Lady Panthers had an overall record of 32-2 last season. The season highlights included Junior Orange Bowl tournament champions, Miami, FL; WCAC league champions; WCAC post-season tournament champions and VISAA division one state champions. The Lady Panthers ended the season ranked number one in the Washington Post, number one in the State of Virginia and seventh in the country by ESPN.
Last season’s WCAC championship was the second consecutive title for the Lady Panthers. Over the last two seasons, the Lady Panthers are 43-1 in the WCAC with an overall record of 61-6. The VISAA state championship was the ninth consecutive Virginia State title for PVI and the Lady Panthers 16th state championship in the last 21 years.
The girls' basketball program consists of three teams: varsity, junior varsity and freshmen. All three teams dominated the DC-Maryland-Virginia region last season with a combined won-loss record of 70-3 and did not lose a game in the WCAC or VISAA.
In addition to the varsity’s impressive performance, the junior varsity team had a perfect season with a 21-0 record. They were crowned WCAC champions for a straight second year and were 41-1 over the last two seasons. The freshmen team also had an outstanding season with a 17-1 record. They competed against WCAC teams along with freshmen and JV teams from private and public high schools across the region. They had an overall record of 33-6 over the last two seasons.
The Lady Panthers are especially proud of their accomplishments off the basketball court. The 2014-15 varsity girls’ team had a cumulative grade point average above 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Since Coach Allen joined PVI in 2002, sixteen Lady Panthers have played basketball at the collegiate level and all PVI players have pursued academic studies in college.
In 2015, PVI was honored when Coach Allen was recognized as the top high school girls’ basketball coach in the country. He was awarded the Pat Summitt Trophy as the 2015 United States Marine Corps/Women’s Coaches Basketball Association “National Coach of the Year.” This prestigious award was presented at the Women’s Final Four in Tampa, Florida, and Coach Allen is the first award recipient from the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia region.
In addition to National Coach of the Year, Coach Allen was named 2014-15 WCAC Coach of the Year, 2014-15 VISAA D-1 Coach of the Year and celebrated his 300th career win on January 28. Since 2002, Allen has been honored as VISAA girls’ basketball coach of the year an unprecedented eight times.
