The women’s basketball team has done it again. With the season quickly coming to an end and four games left on the schedule, the Lions have continued to deliver, and consistency best describes their current record standings.
“This season we have really been working on being consistent. In the past, our team had always been very consistent offensively but struggled defensively at times. This year is reversed. We are trying to become more consistent on the offensive end,” senior Paige Halberg said.
The womens team has had a phenomenal season yet again, and its teamwork and dedication has been clearly evident. The Lions have continued racking up wins and have not lost sight of their last goal for this season: to go to Nationals.
“We are still aiming toward a GSAC championship. We plan on winning out the rest of our conference games, and we’re hoping Westmont and APU will have some slip ups…at this point, we know that anything can happen,” junior Allison Burns said.
There is great chemistry among the women on the team and its obvious that they mesh well with each other on the court.
“I love the team this season! I feel we have a lot of depth and with the returners and the newcomers, we have a great road ahead of us,” sophomore Leigha Bednar said.
The Lions plan to make things happen this season and their eyes are most definitely set on the prize.
“We want to go to Nationals and make a strong run at the title. I think we have the talent and potential to get it,” junior Veronica Beavor said.
The Lions played against The Master’s College this past weekend for the homecoming game and beat the Mustangs fair and square, 77-65. It was an exhilarating game and the alumni and students cheered on as the team defeated the visitors. The Lions stayed on top since the first half of the game.
With only four games left before the GSAC Tournament, the Lions are determined more than ever to keep up the consistency they have worked for all season.
“We hope to finish playing our best basketball so that it will give us a chance to go to Nationals and make a good run. We have the potential to do really well and we hope to reach that potential,” Halberg said.
The Lions have two last games in The Pit, one against California State University-San Marcos and the other against Fresno Pacific University. Catch the last couple of home games of the season and come and support the womens basketball team in The Pit.
