Redhawks escape with wins

Aaron Boehmer, Managing Editor

Ready to compete on Friday against the Lone Star Rangers in District 9-5A action, the Redhawk basketball program had to postpone its adrenaline to Saturday, but that didn’t stop the girls’ team from taking home a 49-47 win in double overtime followed by the boys’ team earning a 41-38 win.

“The postponement of the game didn’t affect us in anyway if anything it just gave us more time to prepare and go over things,” junior Zoe Junior said. “We felt really confident going into the game, and we knew we would have to match their physicality if we wanted to have an advantage over them.” 

Senior Micaiah Abii believes the team can’t get complacent after two district wins (2-5) and must push forward in order to be successful. 

“We were definitely ready to play Friday so it might’ve taken some of the adrenaline away to start the game but for the most part we’re all ready to play,” Abii said. “And we felt good about the outcome because a win is always the goal but we think we could’ve made it a lot easier for ourselves. We can’t settle at any point so it’s still full steam ahead and wins are our fuel.”
