GBB C-Team Gets Two Wins in One Week!
By: Brianne Kuhr, a freshman at Leigh High School
The Clarkson-Leigh C-team girls fought against the David City Scouts on January 10th and the Lakeview Vikings on January 13th.
To begin the week, the Patriots battled against David City Public on Monday. This started their week off right by defeating the Scouts by 17 points. The leading scorer was freshman Baylee Settje with 15 points.
Settje stated, “As a team, we worked really well together. We moved the ball and got good looks. The game gave us an opportunity to try new strategies and see what we need to improve on.”
Junior Deandrea Rivera said, “When going to David City, we were all energetic. This definitely helped us with keeping a positive attitude, which I believe helped us win. We played really well that night, but we also made mistakes. Overall it was a beneficial game for us, and it was an enjoyable experience!”
On Thursday, the girls’ C-team played against Lakeview. The team’s goal was to out hustle Lakeview, and that’s exactly what they did. The Patriots scored many layups, and always beat the Vikings to the basket; this was the key to the game. This led to a 30-point win over Lakeview. The top scorers were Brianne Kuhr with 13 points and Izzy Hollatz with 12 points.
Hollatz stated, “During the Lakeview game, we got a lot of baskets on transition. We also executed our plays very well, which led to some nice outside shots and shots in the post area. As a team, we just played a really great game!”
Coach Rebecca Hiatt said, “After a nice win against David City on Monday, the team came out strong against Lakeview. We played well on both ends of the court and put together a complete game.”
These two wins bring the girls basketball C-team record to 2-2.
