Saturday Jan. 4 marked the annual Find A Cure Night game against the Woodland Wolves, and was all-hands-on-deck as all junior varsity and varsity teams laced up to compete. The junior varsity girls had a hard time containing Woodland’s offence throughout the game and ended up losing 32-14. “After no games for three weeks we were a little rusty,” head coach Tom Crisp recalled his team’s performance. “The four games this next week should get us back in the groove.” The varsity girls would also endure an onslaught of offense from the Wolves resulting in a 57-16 loss. “It was a tough game and our worst loss of the year,” head coach Matt Cooley commented on the game. “No time to pout though. We have four more games this week.” The Wolves would continue their hunt for victory against the junior boys squad and would steal away a close 41-38. “Of all our games this year, I am most proud of this one,” head coach Jon Davis praised his team’s effort. “We didn’t play great and we left it all out on the court. It hurts, but losses like these build character in ways that wins can’t.” Wrapping up the night were the varsity boys and their storm of three’s that rained over the Wolves’ parade. Along with suffocating defense and scooping up offensive and defensive rebounds, the varsity would come away with a 56-43 win. “I was happy with the sense of urgency and we had by far the best game of the year rebounding,” head coach Jason Davis spoke about the win. “It feels good to get a win on such a special night.”]]>
