Lady Vikings Basketball Season Preview

Posted by Girls Basketball at Nov 14, 2016 5:43AM PST

The Village Lady Vikings are coming off of the best season in school history, with a 24-7 record, and a trip to the TAPPS 4A Quarterfinal. This success was sparked by a group of juniors, who return for their senior year, with extremely high expectations. To make the task even tougher, the Lady Vikings will compete in TAPPS 6A. They are also playing an extremely challenging non-District schedule.

“Last year was a tremendous year. Our success occurred because of our ability to attack the daily process of getting better. This year, we are a new team, which will face new challenges. Our biggest challenge is our lack of depth, as half of our roster has very limited experience. We have also put together one of the toughest schedules in school history. Throughout this season, we will play multiple 6A public schools, SPC teams, and could see over ten state-ranked opponents. We are even scheduled to compete against a potential McDonald’s All-American (Alexis Morris, #18 ranked player in the country). This schedule will prepare us for our District schedule, in January, as we aim to make another run at the State Tournament,” Coach Brotherton said.

The team will be led by four seniors; Starlyn F, Amber P, Elisa F, and Caren E. Junior Liz M and Sophomore Kennedy D will also play very critical roles in the success of the team.
“There is no doubt that our program has elevated to its current level, because of the work put in by our seniors. Starlyn and Amber came to the Village School three years ago, and helped change the culture of our program. Elisa joined us last year, and has been a huge part of our success. Caren is a ‘program kid,’ as she has worked her tail off to develop over her four years. This group has put our program on the map. I am forever grateful to these seniors, their families, and it is our mission to honor them with a wonderful season,” said Coach Brotherton.

The 7th grade girls basketball team worked really hard and did well this season! We finished the season 2-8 and 2nd in the silver bracket at the Pin Oak tournament. I am so proud of the girls for their hard work and dedication this winter. We can’t wait to see the girls back on the court next year!


The 7th grade girls basketball team has had a good season so far. The girls have been working really hard on developing their skills and getting better each game.
