The varsity girls basketball team is off to a hot start this season with a 4-0 record, comfortably beating Mountain View (Tuesday, November 4) with a 51-37 win. The JV team went undefeated last year, and many of the girls are adjusting to a much faster game after moving up to varsity.
“[For] the ones that are coming up from JV, there is a big shift in terms of the size and the speed of the game,” head coach Jaclyn Brode said. “It’s an adjustment. But I think that it’s one they’re able to make.”
The varsity team stars just one senior, but Brode sees big potential in the young team. After beating two Top-25 teams, Brode feels confident in the girls’ ability to play against bigger opponents, and the team is still just in the early stages. They are coming into the season with a winning mentality boosted by the JV team’s stellar season last year, but Brode wants the team to stay focused on what’s ahead.
“If we just focus on every day and not get too happy about all those past wins, we can really improve a lot,” Brode said.
