The Girls Middle School Basketball BY: JUSTIN

The girls’ white team has had a good start to the season. In an interview with Reese and Greer, class of 2025, Reese commented that they “work hard and will hopefully win today.” Although they are yet to win, they have overcome many challenges. As Reese said, “At the beginning of the season many of us lacked basketball skill and knowledge,” but they are working hard now to improve skills and play better basketball. Greer pointed out that “ some of us are just learning how to play the game.” Practices with the white team focus directly on their places for improvement. Their practices include running and layups, free shots, and working the ball down the court, as Reese shared. Greer commented that “everyone is having a lot of fun on the white team and it’s a great experience.” The white team is ready for their next game and they have lots of positivity going into it. Go STAB!!!!

The girls maroon team has had a fun start to the season with wins against Regents and St. Catherine’s. One player commented that they are having fun and working together. They have still had to overcome some challenges, for example, playing against bigger teams. The practices are very similar to the White Team with layups, free shots, and working the ball down the court in game-like situations. The team is ready for their next home game when they play Veritas on February 4th at 4:00 at the Tarring Gym. That game is going to be the last one of the season. No matter what happens in the Maroon girls upcoming games, it is safe to say that they have had a good, solid year of basketball.
