Players included: Lola, Emma, Indie, Mya, Lexie, Alexis, Libby, Chloe, Claire, Hailey, June, and Reyna. The season started in December and ended in March. They had practices twice a week. Practices were at the elementary gym and at the field house.
A favorite practice drill was dribble knockout. The team’s least favorite drill was cone (sliding cones while dribbling a basketball).
June B. shared, “I like basketball and it is a great sport! I liked playing defense the best!”
Libby stated, “I like to hang with my (basketball) team and play offense!”
All of the girls together created a powerhouse of a team.
