The girls basketball team lost the sub-state championship on Sat. March 2 against Olathe North.

The first quarter ended 13-12 Jags.

Sophomore Vania Barnett believes the team was able to play with strong teamwork.

“Besides the plays, there wasn’t much strategy,” Barnett said. “It was more encouragement towards each other, and how we got through to each other through talking and listening.”

With half ending 24-23 Jags, coach Drew Walters pumped the girls back up for the second half.

“You need to get out there and fight,” Walters said. “Fight for what’s yours to take.”

As the game went on, Barnett believes that the girls played well, but specifically the third quarter.

“[During the third quarter], you started to see real competition from both teams, and they really started to battle,” Barnett said. “Tonight, I saw pure passion for the game.”

As the fourth quarter ended in a tie, 55-55, the girls went into overtime.

The Jaguars could not prevail, falling 74-56. They ended the season with a 14-6 record.

Barnett is sad to see the seniors leave, but believes they were great teammates.

“[The seniors] worked so hard to make everyone feel included, worked hard in every practice and made every team dinner one to remember,” Barnett said. “It makes me sad to say goodbye to [the seniors], but they will be remembered as the most loving and supportive teammates ever.”
