[12/30/18]   As I sit here and reflect on the last week of basketball, I could not be more proud of our program!

The varsity girls battled at Erie all week and wrapped up the tournament at 4-1, with four straight wins. We showed up each day focused and played hard, but most importantly we played together. We are, without question, a different team right now than we were a few short weeks ago.

Our JV team battled at the Orion tournament this week and played four solid games, finishing 2-2. They played short handed but didn’t let that slow them down. They left it all on the court and there are many positives to take away from the week!

Enjoy your days off - back to work on 1/1/2019!
