Coming off the 2017-2018 season where they reached the first round of state playoffs, the girls varsity basketball team has high hopes for this upcoming season.

Even though they lost some seniors from last year, there are a lot of returning players looking to make another deep playoff run.

According to junior Francie Tomlin, this team is just as good as last year’s.

“We have a tight bond as a team, so we understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses,” said Tomlin, “It helps a lot with entire vibe of the team because we know how to help someone get back up when they’re down.”

This team, led by Coach Dominick Flores, is very young, but they do have a lot of good team chemistry. Junior Chrissy Wakasa believes this will be key for them to be good this year.

“Last season we were able to depend on our seniors to really motivate and push us throughout the game,” says Wakasa, “However, we don’t have those powerhouses anymore and a lot the game is going to depend on how we work as a team.”

After a dominating 58-36 win over Fairfax, the girls are off to a strong start.

The girls play their next home game on Jan. 7, against Westchester High School.
