The varsity girls basketball team pulled off a win against West Bend East on Dec. 11. The girls won 57-50, proving their connection as a team.

“Playing as a whole, we really stepped it up,” McKenna Marotta, sophomore guard, said.

In the first half, Homestead struck out in the lead. When transitioning from defense to offense, Marotta threw a half court pass to Grace Mueller, junior guard, for an open layup.

“We worked the ball well. We got open looks, and we reversed it really well so we could get everyone involved in the offense,” Grace Crowley, senior point guard, said.

During the second half, the Lady Highlanders held their lead by stepping up together as a team rather than focusing individually on themselves.

“We talked about open looks that we could get. So in the second half we came out and we stuck it out until the end,” Crowley said.

Although the score was close towards the end of the game, the team preserved and came out with a win. 

“We’re all really close on and off the court and I think that’s what makes us the best,” Tori Brandenburg, junior guard, said.
