The girls’ basketball team is officially on its way to the state championship again. The players have worked extremely hard in the off-season and are hopeful that their hard work will pay off in the season. This year, the team has the most seniors in the history of the program, with eight. Three out of four of these seniors are already committed to continue their basketball careers at the collegiate level. Senior Natalie Armstrong is committed to play at Samford University, senior Mikayla Coombs is committed to play at the University of Connecticut and senior Bailey Edwards is committed to play at Young Harris College.
With the most seniors ever, the team is hoping to end their season with yet another State Champion title. The team is extremely large this year with 17 players, which is even more than last year’s 14 players. The team is made up of four freshmen, three sophomores, two juniors and eight seniors.
Senior Mikayla Coombs said, “I am excited about the memories we will make as a team and the big games.” Coombs also said, “My favorite part of the team is the bond we have. We are all extremely close and we are sad that this is our last season together.”
The toughest competition in region six will be Holy Innocents yet again. After losing to Holy Innocents in the state championship last year, the lady wolves will have to play their hardest to beat them and make it to another state championship.
Coach Jan Azar said, “I am most excited for coaching my eight seniors for one more year!”
The seniors have all been playing together for all of high school, and this year will be a bitter-sweet end to their high school careers.
