The girls basketball team lost to Lansing 41-32 in the first round of the sub state tournament.

The girls basketball team fell to Lansing, 41-32, in its sub-state game on Thursday, March 6, ending the season 13-8. Senior post player Laurel Knust said that even though they lost, the season ended strong.

“[The game] was a test to see how far we’ve come this season,” Knust said. “Regardless of the loss, I think we proved ourselves and showed the heart we have for this game.”

Knust said the team’s strongest attribute was its perseverance.

“[Our strength was] our inability to go down without a fight,” Knust said. “We knew we dug ourselves a big hole in the first half, but we knew what we needed to do and came out with our minds set on accomplishing that.”

Senior guard Kylie Lewis enjoyed the season because of the team’s gradual improvement.

“I think overall we were very successful. There were high expectations set from previous years and we came in with not a lot of experience,” Lewis said. “We started out kind of slow, still getting used to playing at the next level, but as the season progressed we really came together as a team.”
