Eagles Sneak Past Sequoits in Close Game

On Thursday, Feb. 7, the girls basketball team headed across town to Lakes Community High School with a winning mindset. The team had been rallying the troops as of recent, shaping up their ball movement and defense as regionals has started to loom closer. Heading into this game, the Sequoits hopes were sky high and the big expectations gave the team something to shoot for.

This team has faced every challenge imaginable this season, from minor to season ending injuries, from tough defeats to nail biting victories. These girls are mentally and physically ready for any challenge that awaits and they were beyond ready to win heading into Lakes Thursday night.

The girls came out tonight firing all cylinders, they worked fluently together, made shots early and from the start of the game, spectators knew it was going to be a good one. Senior Rachel Phillips commented on the teams performance.

“We came out strong, but just didn’t eliminate our turnovers,” Phillips said.

As the game went on, turnovers, fouls and bad defensive possessions allowed the Eagles to jump to a 16 point lead. As the game went on senior Piper Foote rallied the team together and they fought back, ending the fourth quarter down six. As a result of mid game mistakes, the Sequoits fell to the Eagles 48-39. Junior Miranda Chamberlin talked about what the team needs to do as they get closer to competing in regionals.

“It’s the small things we need to work on to see an improvement in our games,” Chamberlin said.

Although the girls lost a tough battle, they will continue to keep maturing, learning and growing into a great squad. The girls next game is on Feb. 12, at Resurection High School for their first game of regionals.
