Welcome to Sabercats Girls Basketball 2013-14
Welcome to Sabino High School Girls basketball in Tucson, Arizona.
We are glad you have taken the time to visit our website.
Sabino Girls basketball has completed another successful season, finishing at 18-9 against one of the toughest schedules in their conference. They are averaging over 18 wins per season over the past 5 years and have qualified for postseason play in 5 of the last 6 seasons.
Each season over the last 3 years, they have improved in both their State rankings and National rankings, according to Maxpreps ranking system. They are committed to continuing to improve each year, putting in the necessary hard work both in and out of season.
The 2014-15 season will see Sabino with another young class, with only 1 returning Senior. The loss of 4 seniors will make it necessary for some of the younger players to really step up their games in the off season so they can be key contributors next year.
They will once again be competing against one of the tougher schedules in Southern Arizona next season, and want to encourage you to come be a part of or support the great girls basketball tradition that is being built at Sabino High School.
“If you want what you’ve never had, you must be willing to do what you’ve never done!”.
