Girls Basketball falls 38-41 to Blue Valley West in season home opener

The team had a 23-16 lead by half-time but lost the game in the final minutes Friday, Dec. 1

The girls basketball team faced off against Blue Valley West in the season home opener and lost 38-41 Friday, Dec. 1. 

The team came out fast in the first half, building a 23-16 lead by half time. Blue Valley West fought back in the second half and took the lead in the final minutes of the game and held onto it for the rest of the game.

Head coach Adam Runyan was impressed with the team’s first half performance.

“I was really hyped with how we started,” Runyan said. “I thought we started really strong and we had a lot of energy coming out of the gate. I thought we scored really well in the first half, especially building off from last year.”

According to sophomore Paige Roth, the team needs to be able to play well in both halves of the game. 

“I feel like we played really well as a team,” Roth said. “We played good defense and our offense was good but I think we have to finish the game. We have to be more than a first half team and we have to finish the second half.”

In her high school basketball debut, freshman Riley Marshall scored a team-high, 18 points. Marshall explains her feelings about the game.

“I feel pretty excited and I’m excited to keep playing with this team because I really like everyone,” Marshall said. 

The starting lineup for the game had two freshmen. The youth of the team has Runyan excited for the season. 

“I’m looking forward to coaching this team,” Runyan said. “We’re young and we have a lot of good players that have come up this year, so we got a good group and I’m hyped to coach.
