Meet the Captains: Girls' Basketball – Bri Delatorre '19 and Madi Chang '19
No ordinary, one-dimensional players here. Taking on the leadership of a team that competes with precision, speed and fury, seniors Madi Chang and Bri Delatorre bring a wealth of wisdom and experience to this role. As you will learn in this interview, the team captains’ reflections on the demands of the game are special. These thoughts about the game are only superseded by everything else they have accomplished.
Madi, for instance, has taken a personal interest in Bioethics, completing an online course through the Global Online Academy. Her favorite classes reflect her wide interests. She notes that poetry with Mr. Davis and forensic science with Ms. Zedalis are at the top of her list. During this busy basketball season, she is taking AP psychology, AP statistics, and honors writing. She also participates in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. For college, she plans on staying in California and wants to major in nursing or behavioral neuroscience with an end goal of working as a PICU nurse. A four-year starter on the team and a second-year captain, she has been playing the game for 10 years. Last year she played a second Bishop’s sport: softball. When school is out, her favorite place is the beach and her favorite thing is hanging out with her friends.
Bri is just as busy. She too enjoys the beach and likes to spend free time at Windansea. It is not like she gets a lot of time to do this, however. Her class list is loaded with advanced honors Spanish, honors economics, AP calculus AB and AP statistics. Her favorites include honors econ and narrative fiction. She has been a devoted member of the Bishop’s Singers Choir for four years. Over the course of her time at Bishop’s, she also performed in Page to Stage and at a Coffee House. As if this was not enough, Bri is also the co-founder of the community service club Inspiring Tomorrow’s Performers. In this role over the last three years, she has taught vocals and choreography at La Maestra Youth Center to inspire a passion for the performing arts for youth. Also unsure about next steps, she includes Boston College’s and Indiana University’s schools of business as possibilities for matriculation
As you will see in this interview by Cameron Ezeir '19, these captains share a passion for leadership, teamwork and the game.
