Last season, the girls basketball season didn’t go exactly as expected. They finished the season with a record of 5 wins and 22 losses. The squad did make the playoffs — even the second round — but there was a general feeling among the players that the season could have been more. For this year’s players, last year is now very much forgotten and the players are looking forward to improving their play to have an even more successful season within its tough region.  

This year the team is set to bring back eight players from last year, including several returning starters. They also have the most important component back for another year, specifically the team’s coach Jadechia Hill. With a returning coach and plenty of veterans team unity is at a premium. “The team chemistry is very good this year, and I really think it well help us during the season on and off the court,” said junior Sydney Miller.

Of the eight returning players, the leading veterans are senior point guard Makailah Gause, junior center Sydney Miller, junior guard Annie Weber, senior center Siane Peak and junior guard. Khadijat Kokumo. Along with these key players, the Dubs have a new starter, junior guard Jayden Worswick  a transfer from The Lovett School. Worswick is creating a buzz around the team and supporters of the girls basketball team with her accurate shooting and her great ball handling. “I am super excited about playing basketball for the girls team here, and I think it will be a lot of fun”, said Worswick.

Gause, an experienced team leader, said there’s a palpable sense of optimism about the team’s prospects this year. “It just seems like there’s a lot of positivity this year and thus far it just seems like things are gelling,” she said. “The big thing we need is to stick together and we’d also like to ask for a lot more fan support.”

So far this 2018-19 season, the team started of its season with a victory over Banneker and they dropped two games to Osborne and Greenville High.

The girls this year are really creating a hype around the community and have people excited to see them play. People are buying in to the fact on the potential that this team has, and when the girls on the team buy in and realize how special they are, the season this year will be one to remember for many years to come.
