Atoms face loss in double header

On Jan. 29, the Atoms faced on a double header in basketball against the Woodson Cavaliers.

“The game didn’t go as well as we planned,” Senior Carly Klima, a guard, said. “We played  hard and we tried to do the best we could in the last minutes, but we didn’t couldn’t pull out the win.”

Both teams were beat, with the girls’ score of 34-30 and the boys’ with 61-47.

“The game was rough,” said Sophomore Kaitlyn Pacak, a forward, said. “After the game, Coach Hughes talked to us and said we’re going to into practice and work hard tomorrow to communicate as a team and working together. We had the energy before the game but we started to lose our confidence and get our heads down.”

Senior Ishaq Isse, a guard for the boys’ team, believe that the offense was the issue with this game.

“We were playing really hard,” Isse said. “…we just need to be better as a team and look forward to the next game.”

Junior Ronald Alston, a guard, agrees with Isse.

“We just need to make more shots,” Alston said. “We played better defense than [before].”

“We have to have a good attitude and be ready for South County on Friday.” Pacak said.

The boys will be facing South County at home on Friday at 7:30, and the girls will face the Stallions at home at 5:45.
