The girls basketball team has made it to the playoffs for the second year in a row.
The regular season ended with a final record of 10-2, the SLA girls basketball team has been fierce, competitive, and ready to take on their playoff season.
“We ended our season with a 9 game winning streak,” said math teacher and coach Erin Garvey.
The team then won their first round of playoffs on February 8th, against Parkway Northwest
“My team is a bunch of enthusiastic, hardworking, and dedicated individuals who I think will rise to the challenge and beat a team who they have lost to earlier in the season.” said Garvey.
Garvey had a lot to say about the girls’ strengths as a whole, and how that will help them with the game.
“Instead of focusing on individual stats, the girls started focusing on a team, and how we can win games as a team.” she said. “Playing from defence and bringing that into offense is one of our many strengths.”
Unfortunately, the girls had an upsetting loss on Wednesday Feb. 13th, during their second round of playoffs against School of the Future.
Report cards going out to homes the day before the game, two girls were ineligible to play in the game.
“We made turnovers we don’t usually make.” said Garvey. “We just couldn’t get closer than that 7 point turn around.”
The girls had a great season. Hopefully next year they will do just as well, if not better. The seniors will be greatly missed.
