The girls basketball team continues to work hard and stay focused, so they can achieve their goal in winning the state championship.
There are eight seniors on the team, so it would be memorable to end their high school careers with a state championship.
The Lady Wolves finished their regular season 24-4, and like the boys team, they will be in the state playoffs as well.
When asked how the team will prepare for the upcoming tournament senior Natalie Armstrong said, “We are preparing by focusing on certain defenses and offenses that will be efficient for the teams that we could potentially play down the road in the state tournament.”
Recently, the Lady Wolves played against a big rival, Holy Innocents’. The first two times the teams played each other, Holy Innocents’ defeated the girls, but only by a few points. In the region championship game, the Lady Wolves came out with a big win against Holy Innocents’, beating them 59-50. Not only did the girls’ basketball team defeat their rival, but they also won the region championship.
Senior Natalie Armstrong said, “The most fun game would be the region championship. It was the best game for us a team because all the time we spent preparing for Holy Innocents’ finally paid off with a win.”
Senior Jameson Kavel said, “My favorite game was the region championship because we beat Holy Innocents’.”
The girls received a bye week for the first round of the state tournament. This qualified them to play in the second round of state against George Walton, which they won 73-26. They will continue to work hard in practices, so they can reach their goal of winning state.
