Even though the boys’ and girls’ basketball seasons are not going as planned, the future looks bright with both teams loaded with lots of underclassmen.

“I think the future of the basketball team looks bright. All the younger girls are so talented and there’s just a lot of talent on the team. I think in the next couple years, they’ll be really good,” senior girls’ basketball captain Amelia Singleton said.

The boys’ basketball team is currently 4-10 and the girls’ basketball team is 6-6, according to Maxpreps (as of Jan. 15). Both teams are a little over halfway through their seasons and are looking to finish strong for the rest of the season. Goals have been set in place and it is time for the teams to pull through and check off their goals.

“[Our goal is to] go 500 or over in conference and win at least two section games,” senior boys’ basketball captain Nick Byrnes said.

Both teams know how to get out of sticky situations when they are down in score.

“Positivity. That’s the only thing,” Byrnes said.

Both teams have faced their biggest competitors. For the boys, they played Waconia and hopefully can get the win in their upcoming rematch with them. As for the girls, they played Hutchinson, ending in a close score but a loss for the Spartans.

“We’re figuring out how to play as a team. We didn’t have a single person play a high number of minutes last year so we’re all very inexperienced and we’re constantly changing things up,” Byrnes said.

Overall, both teams are looking forward to the rest of their seasons and are ready to finish strong.
