A lot to be proud of

Head Women’s Basketball Coach

As a coach, I have always put an emphasis on the defensive end of the basketball. It is my philosophy that if you can defend, you can play with any team in the country. The team has bought into my defensive mind-set and their commitment to our defense has limited our opponents’ ability to score and as a result, we have found ourselves in all six of our games this season.

I am so proud of the physical and mental effort that the team puts into every possession. No one on our roster is over 5’10 (with the exception of the 3 coaches…) and thus far we have battled with teams that have at least one, if not more, 6’0 post players. We have used hard work and intelligence to counteract size and speed and we have created frustration for the teams that we have faced.

The success on the defensive end has been overshadowed by our struggles on the offensive side of the basketball. We are in a shooting slump and this has frustrated our players…

I am so proud of this group of women for the way they have played defense and competed this season.

Despite our scoring woes, I have faith in what we are doing and the potential of this young team. We will continue to develop chemistry on the court and confidence in our shots, and this will lead to more success on the offensive end.

As our students head into finals, we will continue to work hard and get better everyday. There is a lot to be proud of and many successes to come!
