The first girls’ basketball team at Allegany was formed in 1918. The team consisted of 6
main players, 3 substitutes and 1 manager. Because of the inexperience the team did
not have a winning season. In 1925 the team had their first winning season, led by
Coach Erma L. Carter, the team went 6 and 5. In 1938 the team hit another milestone.
when they won their first W.M.I.L. (Western Maryland Interscholastic League.)
championship. By 1984 girls' basketball had become popular enough to require a junior
varsity team posted mediocre scores until Scott Bauer became the coach in 1995
ending the season of 1995 with a 12-7 record, the highlight of coach Bauers' career was
when the girls basketball program won the 2000 state championship. In 2007 Coach
Jim O’Neal stepped in to coach Allegany Girls Basketball, and has had many successful seasons since then.
The ‘22-’23 season was a good year for the Campers, going 11-4 while being 4-1 against regional teams.
Most of their wins would come with 15+ point deficits, with the Campers often dominating the floor.
Allegany would lead the way with two All-Area first team selections made by the area's coaches.
Thirteen submitted nominations and twelve returned ballots. Avery Miller was the unanimous selection for the second year in a row.
Her teammate Olivia Looker would join her on the All-Area first team.
The Campers have big aspirations for this upcoming ‘23-’24 season, hoping to make it all the way to the championship!
