News and Announcements
On behalf of the girls Junior Varsity basketball program, I would like to thank our girls for all the time and hard work they have put in over this season. This year, we experienced an untraditional schedule, as most of the district teams did not have a junior varsity team. With all the extra practices and the games we did get to play, the girls played hard and got better each day. We went into each game with confidence and found ourselves in some close games. The girls have come a long way from the first day of practice and I am extremely proud of them. The girls learned the skills needed to play the game of basketball, while building their social skills and creating great friendships. As our season has come to an end, I will miss this group of girls and I wish them good luck in their Spring seasons.
The Varsity girls basketball team had a road District game last Friday against St. Pius X high school. The Lady Vikings waisted no time, jumping out to an early 41-11 halftime lead. Their full-court pressure forced St. Pius into turnovers, which were converted by our Lady Vikings. Liz M. led the team with 7 steals. Her defense in the passing lanes started the team’s fast break, which led to layups. Elisa F led the team with 20 points. Kennedy D also added 15. Freshman, Zoe G, had a career high with 8 points as well!
The Lady Vikings are back in action on Tuesday, January 24th, as they battle St. Agnes Academy (3-1) at 7:00PM. The game is at HOME, so come support your Vikings for their home district contest.
The Varsity girls basketball team had their first road district game of the season on Thursday, January 12th. The Lady Vikings traveled to Duchesne Academy and were focused on the task in front of them. From the opening tipoff, the Lady Vikings controlled the tempo of the game, and did a great job attacking the rim and creating turnovers. After opening up an early double digit point lead, Duchesne battled back to cut the Viking lead to 1. Despite the adversity, the battle-tested Vikings stuck together, and closed out a 53-41 road win. The Vikings were led by Sophomore, Kennedy D., who had 15 points.
The Lady Vikings are back in action on Tuesday, January 17th for Senior Night! Game starts at 6:00PM.
The Varsity girls basketball team started District play on Tuesday night in a home contest against the Beaumont Kelly Bulldogs. The Lady Vikings were relentless early on, pressuring the Bulldogs on defense, creating turnovers, and attacking the basket on the offensive end. The Lady Vikings opened up a 27-5 first quarter lead and never looked back. The Vikings were led by Sophomore, Kennedy D, who had a team high 18 points, and Senior forward, Elisa F, who added 14. The Lady Vikings are back on action this Thursday as the team travels to Duchesne. Game time is set for 5:30PM. Come support your Lady Vikings!
The Junior Varsity Girls basketball team has begun! Coach Brancato and the Lady Vikings are excited for the upcoming year. The Junior Varsity team returned four girls from last season and welcomed seven freshmen. The Lady Vikings have played in three games already and will be playing six more games to prepare for district play in January. Together the girls are working hard to improve and find success.
