Girls JV B-Ball Improves over Season

Many good things were seen from the junior varsity basketball team this season.

A lot of experienced players joined the team, people playing basketball for 2-9 years. The team worked hard to keep scoring points, and they even won games with scores like 50-15, which was seen in their first division game against Dulaney High School.

“On our first game of scrimmage, the whole team worked together. It was our first time out there on the court, and we flowed very well. We played Dulaney and won that game, even when we lost the championships to them last year,” freshman Brooke Mariner explained.

Many CHS students show support to the team  and attend all the games.

“Most people from the school cheer you on, and always have positive things to say,” sophomore Alicia Buck said.

Even though the team didn’t make it to the playoffs, they ended the season with a record of 7 to 3 with the help of coach Brian James.

“Coach James always pushes us to try our best without being too hard on us,” sophomore Kelsey Ellis stated.

The team greatly improved by the end of the season, gaining more skills, and experience for the future. As some of the players go into varsity basketball next year, the experience they had in JV will make them better players.
