    Jitt Schneider|Updated Nov 9, 2023

    We went to Terry on Friday, there were two girls out sick, and two were injured. The score board does not always reflect what they have accomplished with the positionless offense, passing and defensive skills. They are moving the ball around, dribbling and shooting the ball. We are still working on our free throws to improve our percentage from the line and talking to teammates on defense. I also want to thank Coach Olsen, Coach Klauzer, Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Spencer and Trista DeFrance for volunteering their time to assist. The...

We are setting goals during practice and for games, whether it is getting a certain amount of defensive and offensive rebounds or less than 10 turnovers or 30 baskets. These girls are working hard to accomplish their goals as a team, and we also have encouraged them to set personal goals. Coach Olsen has stopped at the gym to assist with some drills and...
