Amidst cheering fans and supporting parents, the team played a nail-biter of a game. While they ultimately lost by 4 points, the entire team showed much improvement and played confidently against a more experienced and larger team. Riley Anderson and Coco Ma handled the ball strongly against a man press and led our team at the point. Taylor Benavides and Kenlee Gardner both made strong cuts on offense and allowed the team to have good ball movement and were always excellent options for scoring. Victoria Concepcion and Anna Rossi did an excellent job defending against Hopkin's strongest and most experienced player successfully shutting her down in the latter half of the game. Our top scorers were the sister duo of Ellie and Kenlee Garder, each with 4 points. Adding to our score was Riley Anderson with 3 points, and Taylor Benevides and Victoria Concepcion with 2 each. As new players, both Lea Richter and Marlee Diana showed much improvement and grabbed some key rebounds that led to points. Coach Tomkiel and I will look to even more improvement over the coming weeks and hopefully a win over Renbrook at the end of February.
