After two big wins against the Independence Knights, both the girls’ and boys’ basketball teams are looking to maintain their momentum against the Centennial Titans Tuesday at The Nest. 

“The win against Independence was a good reminder of how we need to play,” junior Lilly Ziemkiewicz said. “It was a reminder for everyone how well we play when we work hard and play together.”

The girls’ team is hoping to keep their hold on first place in the District 9-5A standings.

“I am looking forward to playing a really good team game and execute our scouting report,” Ziemkiewicz said. “I obviously would love to come out with a win. If we play the way we can I know we will win.”

As a playoff berth begins to grow more likely for the boys with their run of eight straight district wins, senior Micaiah Abii is taking the season one win at a time.

“We’re simply looking for a win against Centennial,” Abii said. “We lost to them last time and we feel we’re more prepared this time and playing at home should help.”
