Girls JV and varsity faced Homer on Tuesday. Both teams played tough, but Homer came out on top. JV ended with a score of 16-37 and by the end of the Varsity game, the score was 41-50.

During the game, our team wore orange ribbons in their hair to show their support for Tyson Garret. Tyson got in a serious car accident earlier this year. He is an outstanding basketball player at Homer High School. Concord came through and showed support for all of Homer. Wearing the ribbons brought both the teams closer together and gave them a sense of comfort. 

Karlee Gamet is a crucial part of our Varsity team. Before the game, she says “I hope the game on Tuesday is fun and everyone will have a good time, we’re playing a tough team and it should be a good game.” 

Madison Connelly is a Senior on our varsity team. She says “My hopes are that we play a great game, work hard, and win! So far our season has been good. We have been working so hard and putting in so much work. Hopefully, soon everyone will be able to see all the hard work we are putting in! Something we have been working on is good communication on the court, when we have this we are unstoppable!” She is excited about the game and is ready to go out there and try her hardest. 

After the game JV player, Ella Woolworth reflected on the game. “I think we communicated well and our defense was really good. We also really played like a family.” Although their team played well, there is always something you can improve on. Ella says “we definitely need to work on rebounding, not turning the ball over, and shutting the other team down.” 

Come support our girls’ team at their next game on February third. They will be facing Springport at home. Be loud and be proud!
