The Varsity Girls Basketball Team has a rich tradition of winning. We were AHSAA Class 3A Regional Runner-Ups. In the last six years; they have a 97-39 record, 3 Area Championships, 1 Final Four Appearance, 1 Regional Championship, 1 Sweet Sixteen, 2 Elite 8’s, 2 Sub-Regional wins. However, with all of the great accomplishments that have been made by the girl’s basketball team, our budget does not allow for the purchase of new uniforms. With the success of our basketball program, our girls deserve new uniforms. Many of these players participate in multiple sports, therefore, sometimes causing a strain on the parents/guardians. In the past, although we have had numerous fundraisers, parents and coaches have still had to contribute money from their own pockets to help cover team expenses. This year we are anticipating another year of success.
The players are young, but they are looking for an opportunity to be powerful and represent our school with pride. They are eager to make a difference and continue the storied tradition of our basketball program. There is a saying that goes, “If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play well. If you play good, you win!” Although this is not the ultimate goal behind the team uniforms, it does play a major part. As a former player and the Varsity Girls Basketball coach, I feel that the girls are so deserving of new uniforms. Both teams have both powered up and researched different types of uniforms. Something as simple as uniforms has really helped these young athletes understand the meaning of T.E.A.M = Together Everyone Accomplishes More.
Being from a small school in a rural area, many times we fall short of donations because sponsors and companies are drained from donating to multiple organizations. It is a tremendous task to buy new uniforms and purchase spirit packs, as well as perform to the best of their abilities on the basketball court.
