    Comets Basketball

    The COMETS are a non-profit girls basketball club started in the mid 1980's by Renee Pierangeli and John Gallagher.   The club continued to grow under long time NBA referee Joey Crawford, current Notre Dame coach Linda Genther , her husband, long time coach at Cardinal O'Hara Chris Genther and Carroll head coach Renie Shields..   The main objective that began back then, has continued through today.

    The COMETS strive to provide quality basketball instruction and superior competition for females from ages 9 to 17. These young ladies compete against teams from around the country, and continue to thrive at college exposure events and Nationals. Since the very beginning, the COMETS have created a reputation for fielding groups  of hard-working, fun-loving,  highly competitive and really talented teams.

    Currently the COMETS boast 35+ girls playing college basketball, and over 300 former players receiving college scholarships. Our priority continues to be development through instruction and EXPOSURE by participating in the MAJOR College Viewing tournaments. Our instruction comes from the best coaches in the area. 

    The 2017 version of the COMETS promises to be no different!
