The girls’ basketball team will hit the court on Friday, for their third district game of the season against the Emerson Mavericks at The Nest at 6:30 p.m.

“We hope to be stingy defensively throughout a 32 minute contest,” head girls’ basketball coach Ross Reedy said. “We had moments of doing that the other day and didn’t give up many points in the first quarter, but after that we gave up 11 to 9 points.”

Former assistant coach Kathryn Wilson for Liberty, is now the head coach for Maverick girls basketball. 

“The head coach of that school is my former assistant,” Reedy said. “Coach Wilson has won a state championship with us, went to another state final with us, and is also a great personal friend of mine. It brings up a lot of really positive emotions to be able to see her and coach with her.”

In addition to playing Emerson over winter break, the team will participate in the Sandra Medows Classic tournament, and will face off against Lebanon Trail and Heritage in district play.

“I’m actually feeling pretty excited for our games over break,” junior Judith Aluga said. “I think the team is prepared enough, we just need to stay locked in over the long break. We are starting to be more cohesive in games, so overall i’m feeling pretty good about our matchups ahead.”
