With the start of the new basketball season the scoreboard has failed to reflect the progress of the girls basketball team.
“The scores haven’t reflected the progress of the team. The scores would start to reflect the progress if we could eliminate silly turnovers, make a few more baskets, and have more rebounds. The scores would then be closer to reflecting their progress,” head coach Cody Morgan said.
The scoreboard may not be reflecting it, but the team has made so much progress this season.
The record of the team going into this week is 1-14. The best games so far have been against Conway and Lakeland.
“Against Conway we executed our game plan well, rebounded and scored inside, we just missed finishing it out with a win. Against Lakeland we played good team basketball, our transition offense was good and we played good defense,” Morgan said.
“We’re getting better slowly, but surely. We have been fixing things that need to be fixed, while working in practice and noticing our mistakes at games,” said senior post Jessica Kuykendall.
For the team to get where they are at they have been working extremely hard. They practice every day that they don’t have a game and sometimes on Saturdays.
“The team has worked extremely hard. They go hard every drill, ask questions, and watch practice and game films,” Morgan said.
“Our biggest improvements this season so far have been working together, not giving up, and caring whether we win or lose. Last year the team didn’t seem to care so much, but this year we really have started to care,” sophomore guard Tristin Surrell said.
The team is only about mid season and still has a lot of time to make a turn and have their scores show just how much they have progressed.
