Girls end season with 20 wins

In the beginning of the girls basketball season, the team started off slow and ended with an amazing record, according to junior center Brea Gegg. When the girls played Francis Howell on Feb. 8, they won the game with a score of 57-34. The girls played Francis Howell North in GACs and won with a score of 52-35.

The girls played in districts against Fort Zumwalt North, then played against Fort Zumwalt South for the district title. The girls fell to South 34-29. This left their season at 20-8.

“All together, I think our season has gone well. We had 20 wins and eight losses. It was a great season, and I’ve seen our team progress,” said junior point guard Jazmine Davis.

The girls all have their own favorite memories of this year’s season. Some are big games and others are just those small moments.

“My favorite game would have to be when we versed North Tech because no one expected us to win that game. It was close throughout the whole game, but we ended up with the win,” said Gegg.

However, the common consensus of the girls is that practices were often a place of enjoyment as well. Funny moments would occur simply as a result of friends, almost like sisters, being together.

“The most fun moment would be during our practice in the small gym. The lights went out, and we all just started dancing in the middle of the basketball court,” said Jones.

Over the past seasons, the girls have progressively gotten better and have won more games.

“From my freshman year to now, I think our basketball record has been the best with 20 wins. The past years we’ve only won maybe 15-17 games but never 20,” said Jones.

For next year, the girls team is hoping to bring home the district championship and be able to make more memories and successes, according to Davis.

“[This year] we let it slip away from us, but I know we are very capable of bringing home that talent,” said Davis.

The girls are still in high spirit of their accomplishments and hard working dedication that is well-shown, according to senior forward Allie Berck.

“Although we came up short in districts our 20-8 record shows just how hard we have worked, and I am so proud to say I’m part of this team,” said Berck.
