Girls basketball competes in pre-season scrimmage

The girls went up against Olathe East and Spring Hill at home Tuesday, Nov. 28

Girls basketball played hard in a pre-season scrimmage in preparation for their game Friday, Dec. 1. They took on Olathe East and Spring Hill at home Tuesday, Nov. 28. 

Sophomore Paige Roth described her feelings about how her team played.

“I feel like we played good, especially since this is the first time our team has played together in a scrimmage,” Roth said. “I think [we’ll work on] running plays, we’ll better our defense, and making shots especially.”

Junior Gracie Kurzejeski shared similar thoughts about how the match went.

“I think we did pretty well. I think our defense was really good,” Kurzejeski said. “There’s definitely a couple of things we need to clean up, but overall, we played hard and I feel like we had really good chemistry together.”

I feel like everybody’s connecting and clicking really well together.

Junior Averie Landon explains how her team will prepare for their upcoming game.

“We’re probably going to work on making shots. In practice, we’re probably going to be finishing a lot of free throws and knocking down threes,” Landon said. “We need to get our offense working in a flow and talk a lot more on defense.”

Similarly, Roth shares how the group will get ready for future games.

“We’ll definitely work on offense. I feel like executing our offense better will help,” Roth said. “On defense, switching and talking would make us a lot more successful.”

Not only is how the team prepares for the game important, but how they work together contributes too, Roth explains.

“I feel like we have really good energy on the court, especially in practice,” Roth said. “We are starting to learn how everybody plays and it’s definitely helping us get better.”

Kurzejeski expresses how well the team is getting along.

“We have good chemistry. A lot of us have played together, so we have multiple juniors that have played together and then some freshmen and sophomores, and I feel like everybody’s connecting and clicking really well together.” Kurzejeski said.
