The start of the new season for the sport to watch.

Even though summer is gone, winter brings the fun and excitement of basketball season. Girls Basketball has already had their first two games, and their first win. Winning, however, has not come without weeks of preparation and trial.

“After tryouts we have just started practicing, conditioning, working on plays, and team bonding to ensure we are a close, well connected team,” said Ally Lowe 12.

This year will be different in that a large portion of the varsity team last year were seniors that have graduated, leaving big spots to fill by underclassmen. This has created the difficulty of building a team that works together and performs consistently well.

“We have a completely new team so we have done lots of team bonding,” said Gemma Gibbs, 9.

These underclassmen have had to improve to be competitive at the varsity level and support the team.

“I would say we have the challenge of experience since most of the varsity players graduated, we need to keep growing our skills and keep improving so we are on the varsity level,” said Lowe.

While also supporting each other, the team has used social media to publicize the times and themes of their games to get attendance of more Legend students. The season has many fun and exciting games to come.

“We are really excited for the Chap and Pondo games, but we have had a few injuries with some of our players already,” said Gibbs.

“I enjoy playing basketball because its a fun team sport, even though its mentally and physically challenging, the outcome of working with my team and winning is very rewarding,” said Lowe.

With plenty of potential and the drive to do great, Legend’s Girl’s Basketball has a variety of home and away games for students to attend and come to support.
