Game Recap

I don’t think I have ever been so happy to come out of a 21 point loss. In the second half our girls figured out what it took to compete. They dug down deep and found a way to be “All In” and give everything they had. These girls played with heart, passion, desire, and shear will and pulled the game back within 10 in the 3rd. They played smarter, harder, and together for the longest stretch of time I have seen this season. Hopefully this new found determination will develop into even more success when it comes to the goals we have each game. We just ran out of gas and we can work on fixing that. These girls have a taste and I pray it develops into an unquenchable thirst. Now we know what a little bit of success from hard work feels like and hopefully that can help us focus and achieve more in the next few practices to give ourselves the best opportunity to win this Saturday against Rochester. We are doing a canned food drive to donate to Helping Hands of Miami County. Fans that bring in cans will get an opportunity to shoot for Powerades or 2 liters of Coke at the game. We will also have a C team game preceding the JV game at 5pm. Our Chris Ousley All-State Insurance “Your In Good Hands with Chris and All-State” Impact Player of the Game was Syenna Powell. Syenna answered the call at halftime and played with her heart and everything else she could muster by giving it her all. She was the spark that ignited the 3rd quarter surge that brought the game within 10 by attacking the defense and shooting games or saving balls on the defensive side. She finished the game with 8 points on 3 of 4 shooting from the floor and was able to gather 3 rebounds, 2 steals, and took a charge. Great job Syenna and a big thank you to Chris Ousley All-State Insurance for supporting our program.
