Girls basketball gets first league win

On Jan. 5, girls’ basketball defeated South Hills HS in their league season opener by a score of 62-47.

Despite scoring the team’s second-best 15 points, co-captain Ivy Liang (12) is discontent with her performance.

“I definitely could have done better,” Liang said. “In the beginning, I was not hitting my shots and as a team, we were not playing that well. In the second half, we really brought it back though, and my shots finally began to fall.”

Regardless of her first-half struggles, Liang believes she was well prepared.

“As always, I made sure I stretched and warmed up before the game,” Liang said. “Eating proper meals and getting a good amount of sleep the night before is also just as important to me.” 

Alongside Liang, co-captain Savannah Salo (11) shares her thoughts on her team-best 20 point game. 

“I am satisfied with the outcome of the South Hills game,” Salo said. “Everyone was nervous because it was our first league game, but we were able to work together as a team to get the win.”

Salo also touches upon some aspects of her game that she would like to improve on.

“Personally, I think I need to improve on being more physical under the basket when playing the post position,” Salo said. fs. “This will allow me to help the team score more points and get more rebounds.”

The Ladycats will next play Walnut HS on Jan. 14.
