The varsity girls basketball team began preparing for their games for this season. From Oct. 29 to Nov. 3, the girls tried out for the junior varsity and varsity teams. On the week of Nov. 5, the results of the tryouts were announced and practices began for both JV and varsity.

Last year, the varsity team finished with a record of 1-9. This season, they are hoping to win more games and make it further into Peninsula Athletic League playoffs.

“We didn’t have good chemistry. There wasn’t a lot of communication,” said sophomore Stephannie Tong Woo  about last year’s team.

According to Tong Woo, Coach Ron Fontana has made practices more intense with extra running and conditioning to make sure that there will not be a repeat of last season.

Fontana believes that the team is better this year because they are older and have more experience.

“The freshmen from last year matured, got stronger, and are taking it more seriously. So, the team should be better,” stated Fontana.

The varsity team lost key player Natalie Leist, who graduated last year. Fontana said, “We have two transfer students, Anisa Smith and Keta Iongi who filled the gap of Natalie Leist.”

The Scots are continuing to work hard as their first scrimmage approaches on Nov  24 against Mt. Pleasant.
