Girls varsity basketball started their conference schedule off with a 49-36 win against Caledonia. Their conference record as of now is 4-0, and their overall record is 5-1 with their only loss against Benilde-St. Margaret’s in a Thanksgiving weekend game at St. Thomas.

The team has 5 seniors this year: Isabel Northrop, Abigail Allen, Gloria Flanagan, Ella Reilly, and Ellie McRaith.

“I think we have great potential to go far this year, because we have stellar defense! Since it’s my last year I really would like to beat Lourdes because they’re our rival. The biggest lesson I’ve learned throughout my high school years is to not take a single day for granted,” Gloria Flanagan said.

“I think we have really good team chemistry this year, and I think that will make a big difference in the long run. I think it would be really cool to be conference champs, because it is definitely in our reach. Basketball is so much more than the time you have on the court. It’s the bus rides and the team bonding that make you feel like a little family. The biggest lesson I’ve learned the past few seasons is to be selfless and put your team above yourself and that it’s not about the minutes on the court, it’s about the memories made off the court,” Abbey Allen said.

“I think our season is off to a great start, and we can only go up from here. Since it’s my last season I really want the team to continue to work hard to try and be conference champs and make it far in the section tournament,” said Isabel Northrop. “You’ll have so much more fun in the sport if you show up and work hard,” Ellie McRaith added.

“I want students to continue to come to games and show their support!,” Ella Reilly added.

The next Girls varsity game is Friday, December 14, against La Crescent-Hokah at Cotter.
