Comets Tournament Help the Nicole Never Give Up Fight

The Comets will have donations Sneaker Shoe Boxes at all sites for the Comets Tournament - we are all in to support our very own Comets alum Nicole Schneider Bomberger who is for the fight of her life.  Nicole played for the Comets for many years and then starred at Notre Dame Academy and Millersville University.   We attended an amazing benefit last month at Heritage Ballroom where over 500 people attended to help Nicole and her family with medical expenses that are building - Nicole works for Hershey in Hershey PA and commutes to Abramson Cancer Center at Penn.  Facebook page is 

nicole's fight with metastatic breast cancer.  You can follow the fight there her updates are truly inspiring and so very sad at the same time.


Nicole Bomberger (38), wife of Torrey, Mom of Hailey Ann (7) and Kinsey Mae (5) , was diagonosed with Stage 4 Recurrence of Metastatic Breast Cancer in December 2016.
She is currently and will continuously be receiving treatment at Abramson Cancer Center at Penn. Please join us in collecting any donations to show your support for Nicole and help contribute towards her ongoing medical expenses. 

Attached is the article that appeared in Delco Times her story !

and pictures of her beautiful young family.


The Comets will be donating a portion of the admission fees to help with the fight.  Feel free to pay 20.00 for the weekend or throw a few bucks in the boxes provided.   Every lit bit helps.


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!
