On Friday, Dec. 9, the girls JV basketball team played against Michigan City. The girls defeated the Wolves with a final score of 57-17.
“I think we all played really well and we came out strong. We handled Michigan City’s pressure well and played a good defense. I love when Coach Gray draws up a play and it works perfectly,” Meghan Long (10) said.
The team had motivation to continue their winning streak this season. The girls were able to learn from past games and improve their plays.
“We definitely had a lot of motivation going in by hearing that Michigan City really wanted to beat us on our home court and ruin our winning streak. Every game we’re always hoping that we can play smarter and stronger than the other team,” Madison Dulski (9) said.
The girls feel that they have a strong season ahead of them and look forward to continue their winning streak.
“I’m feeling excited to play East Chicago; it should be a tough game, but we all love a tough game.” Long said.
The next girls JV basketball game is against Marian Catholic High School on Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 10:30 a.m.
