With the current season gradually coming to its end, the varsity girls’ basketball team owns a record of 2-5 with both of their wins coming against the Bell Gardens Lancers, most recently on Tuesday, Feb. 4. However, the team has suffered a couple losses in which they gave up a lead in the second half of games. Led by Head Coach Erik Williams, the Lady Moors have been practicing daily in hopes of earning a couple more wins in the Almont League despite being out of contention for the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) playoffs.
“We’ve been working on the little things, mainly fixing small mistakes like having better passes or rotating on defense,” said junior guard Katherine Hui. “We made [errors] at times [in games] but we’ve been playing pretty good basketball.”
As for next year, the Lady Moors have rebuilding to do in terms of their starting lineup due to the number of seniors that are graduating from the program. However, the team will have seven returners to make the transition smoother and keep the team intact. The returners include four juniors, two sophomores and one freshman. With the summer and fall to prepare, the team believes that time will help them improve for next season and also allow them to find leaders on their young team.
As the season closes, the team concludes with two home games against the Montebello Oilers and the Schurr Spartans on Feb. 10 and Feb. 13, respectively, both at 5 p.m.
