The JV girls basketball team has had a successful and overall winning season. The girls ended their season with back-to-back wins against Fernley and Sparks on February 15 and 16.
“All 11 of the girls are contributing to the team day in and day out. We play more as a team and our ball movement is a lot better. We are all getting better at finishing around the rim,” said coach Lynnsey Johnson.
Coach Johnson tried to enforce the importance of keeping the curriculum as a focal point along with ball handling.
“We wanted every player on our team to improve every practice. We want a winning record at the end of the season. We also want to be successful in the classroom,” said Lynnsey Johnson.
Junior Ariana Galindo is one player that has made the most out of the practices and overall time spent with the team.
“My goal was to have a fun season with all my teammates and of course improve my basketball skills but mostly I wanted to be a great captain, player, and friend for the team. I definitely think I have fulfilled my goals this season has been one of the best years of basketball I’ve experienced,” said Galindo. “We won almost all of our games which is always fun and I absolutely love all my teammates and our determined coach who pushed us, to be honest.”
Sophomore Macy Delong believed that the season could not have ended better.
“Both games went really well, they were great wins for us being at the end of our season. Our team worked really hard and played our best through both games. I am sad that the season is over but overall, it was a great season. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome our team had. It was great to win the last two games of the season and it couldn’t have been better,” said Delong.
Delong is confident in her team doing bigger and better things in the upcoming season.
“We are determined, we hustle and we all play hard until the end. We all worked together on the court in big ways,” said Delong.
