Girls' basketball adds new players, techniques
The girls’ basketball team has had many wins in past seasons and is working to continue that success this season.
“Coach (Jim Donmoyer) is pushing us this year,” said senior Madison Rambler, “We are getting into shape and working hard. Pushing each other is the only way we will have a good outcome.”
Last year the team had a record of 15-9.
“I’m most excited about the team’s potential,” said Donmoyer. “I’m excited to see where this year’s journey takes us.”
Three key players were lost from last year’s team: Gracen Donmoyer, Jade Rolon and Rachel Witherite. Rolon now plays at Marywood University.
“Last season, we struggled a little bit [making it to Leagues]” said senior Hannah Woelfeling, “But I think this year we will have no problem.”
Despite the losses, many key players are returning to the court, including Rambler and Woelfling, and fellow seniors Molly Bucher, Kaitlin Kline, Raven Morgan and Morgan Thompson.
“We put in a lot of hard work at practice,” said Kline. “We are hoping to bring all of what we do in practice to the court this year.”
Kline, along with the other seniors have been playing basketball with each other since middle school.
“We know how each of us plays” said Kline,” and how to share the ball as a team.”
Three sophomores will also be a key part of the team: Reese Glover, Sarah Laney and Megan Sholley.
“We look very promising and we have a lot of depth,” said Rambler. “We plan on having a very good season and going far.”
