JAN. 9 -- The Varsity Girls Basketball team continues to improve as it works hard on fundamentals and finding ways to score.
"Although our record stands at 3-11, that in no way shows the vast improvement our team has made thus far this season." said Head Coach Angela Crosby. "We are becoming more comfortable with our roles and they are beginning to understand that everyone we have on our roster has to contribute in order to experience success."
In addition to tough region competition thus far this season, the Lady Patriots participated in a Christmas tournament at Campbell High School. "This tourney did exactly what you want any games to do over a break," said Coach Crosby. "It helped our girls to "grow up". Playing three games in three days pushes you mentally and physically which will help us as we continue through our region play."
During this tourney, Megan Messinger returned to action after an injury that sidelined her for about a month and provided some much needed offensive punch for the team as she averaged 17.5 points a game. Jordana Jimenez added 8 points per game in addition to handling point guard duties and Anna Mancil added 12 points per game.
"We are encouraged as we enter January," said Coach Crosby. "I am proud of how our girls have continued to improve when it is very easy to just quit while experiencing adversity. Come support your Lady Pats through the second-round games of conference play. We would love to hear you in the stands!"
The Varsity Girls travel to Mount Paran on Saturday, Jan. 12 and return to the Drum to take on Whitefield on Tuesday, Jan. 15.
