Girls’ basketball heads out of state representing the Redhawks in the Utah. The team will compete in the Holiday Hoopfest, playing on Friday and Saturday.

The Redhawks girls’ basketball team hopes to continue their success, but this weekend, they’re taking the team’s longest road trip of the year by playing in the Utah Hoopfest on Friday and Saturday. 

“I feel like it’s going to be a cool experience,” junior Anaiah Warrior said. “I’m excited about making memories with my teammates and getting to spend time with them; just enjoy our moments together.”

The Redhawks left on Thursday, flying to Salt Lake City where they are playing Westlake High School from Saratoga Springs, UT on Friday and Riverdale Ridge High School from Thornton, CO on Saturday. 

“It’ll be tough because the competition there is way different than it is here,” head coach Ross Reedy said. “Here it’s heavily athletic and not always fundamental. They’re going to work the ball, they’re gonna play together. So it’ll be a big challenge for us.”

“It gives us the opportunity to spend more time together outside of basketball,” junior Anaiah Warrior said.

The Redhawks have never traveled out of state for a game before. Spending two nights together, Warrior believes this experience will be a great bonding opportunity for the team.

“I feel like this will help with team bonding,” Warrior said. “It gives us the opportunity to spend more time together outside of basketball.”

Having five star U16 gold medalist Jacy Abii on the Redhawks team is one reason why the Redhawks were offered this out of state opportunity.

“When you have heavily watched and sought after [players], then there’s these opportunities where they try to put some of the best talent in the countries against each other,” Reedy said. “And so we got invited to this and it’ll be a good experience.”
