The girls basketball season had rewarding moments that have coaches excited for the upcoming year.
The girls basketball season began the first week of November and ended the first week of February, with the last game being on the 7th. There were a total of 10 wins out of the 27 games of the season.
“We beat a lot of the teams we were supposed to beat and came in close to some teams no one expected us to beat,” coach Shonte Roberts said.
The girls showed a lot of growth in performance and personality. With some of the girls coming off of a Covid year, they were able to quickly rebuild their skills on the court and student-teacher relationships off the court.
“Some challenges I faced were staying consistent throughout the whole game and limiting my turnovers,” sophomore Warida Ndizeye said.
There were many memorable moments for the coaches and players throughout the season.
“Back in December, whenever we had the blended girls Varsity and JV, they placed in the tournament,” Roberts said. “That was the most rewarding because there was a lot of adversity, a lot of question marks… and they pulled it together.”
Roberts is most thankful for the team manager, Trinity Kelly, who has stepped up as one of the leaders this year by dedicating much time and effort for the team’s benefit.
After a close season, Roberts is hopeful to see what big things the team will bring next year.
“We showed some strengths and growth in our young team, and some exciting points to look forward to with our returners,” Roberts said.
