Girls’ Basketball: Shooting for Glory

From Issue 3

The girls’ basketball season is upon us and officially starts on November 10th. One could say the season really started weeks ago because they have already started practices everyday after school. The girls have been working hard for this upcoming season.

The girls’ team is looking energetic, and this will create some exciting games for this year. Be sure to come to many of these games. They need the fans support this year playing a couple of tough opponents including Jackson Academy and Madison-Ridgeland Academy. Since the girls’ basketball team usually plays before the boy’s team, this allows the fans to watch both games conveniently in one afternoon.

The team hopes to improve from last year which could be tough with the loss of four seniors from last season.  This year there six seniors on the team: Kristina Zouboukos, Haley Litchliter, Beth Graeber, Olivia Brown, Tori Jones, and Clayton Noblin. These seniors will need to step up to replace the roles that last year’s seniors had on the team. The success of the team is not only in the girls but also in the coaches. The girls’ basketball team is led by head coach Michael McAnally and the assistant coach Juanita Ward.

***CORRECTION: In the print version (and initial online version) of this story, seniors Olivia Brown and Tori Jones were omitted. The Sentry regrets the error.***
