The Lady Bucs basketball team has been very busy putting in work in the gym and on the court in order to have a successful season. Starting with preseason over the summer workouts, the girls prepare all year long for the winter season.

The Bucs are looking to have a better season than last year and to win a couple of games at Regionals. The players are looking to grow individually and be able to work well as a team.

Varsity returner Lexi Keating said, “with this being my final season, I plan to work harder than ever and so does the whole team. Overall, we’re hoping for a lot of improvement and hopefully a couple of dubbs. Go Bucs!”

The team this year has a very different aspect from previous years before. They have girls from all of the levels playing on this year’s varsity team. Six girls are varsity returners and five are newcomers. The returners include Rylee Abraham, Yoyo Gardner,  Alexis Keating,  Kori Kotarba, and Quinn Yerk. A few newcomers are Juniors Kia Phillips, Illuzion Michel, Geovanna Ibarra-Anacleto and Sophomore Paige Kitsemble.

One key player to look out for this year is junior Maya Smith. Varsity head coach Christina Douglas said, “Smith is returning this year at the point guard position, and will set the tempo for our team.”

With all the hard work the girls are putting in, improvements will be made for sure. Their first game is Monday, Nov. 12 at home against Genoa Kingston.
