Girls basketball seek a successful season

December has rolled around and so has the winter sports season.

Girls Varsity Basketball looks to improve on an unsuccessful 2017/2018 season. Senior Grace Hatch sees the problems the team had and knows how to fix it.

“Last year’s season had good moments to it but this year we are working on improving our shooting consistency, our communication, and our endurance,” Hatch said.

“My personal goal this season is to have a winning season,”

The girls played their first game on November 28th against Fairfax High School. The Rebels beat the Atoms 70-27.

Grace isn’t fazed by this loss though.

“Yesterday’s game was a learning experience because we didn’t have the whole team, we had girls hurt and sick. We did the best we could with what we had and we can only improve from there,” Hatch said.

The girls have taken into experience that basketball is a team game.

“I am looking forward to seeing us as a team comes together on and off the court,” Hatch said. With a very important schedule coming up, girls look to make a strong push for the season.

The girls are preparing for an upcoming tournament at Potomac High School on December 1st and 2nd.

The girls play their next game on December 5th at Falls Church High School.
