Girls basketball defeated reigning conference champions on Tuesday, Dec. 14, with a final score of 75-55.

The Highlanders have a number of freshmen girls joining their team this year.

Zoe Mueller, junior point guard said, “It’s very special because of all the freshmen that are on our team… I think that they really just adapted to the varsity level basketball very well”. Adding new faces to a team can bring change, but the girls are able to adapt and make a strong, connected environment.”

Natalie Mueller, freshman shooting guard, expressed her thoughts on being a new addition to the team.

“I feel like it’s hard, but it’s also fun because we get to play with older people, and I feel like were used to it with AAU and everything, because we get to be with each other for so long,” Mueller said.

Coach Corey Wolf added, “I think the personalities are kind of fun. Every team has their own personality as a group and individually, so this team has a lot of personality and they have fun together. I think that’s the best part. If the kids like each other you’re gonna perform well on the court,” Wolf said.

This being Coach Wolf’s eighth year, she says she feels the team is special because of “our returners and our upperclassmen have really found different ways to make this team better and they have made individual sacrifices like personal sacrifices for this team to continue to grow and they just find a way.”
