Three weeks into the 2017 season, the North Lakes Academy girls basketball team is off to an exciting start! Everyone is enthusiastic for the upcoming season and what it will bring. Captain Emma Tiedeman (12) is most excited to “see how the team develops and grows over the season.” Each player is working hard to do their best and making improvements where needed, both on offense and defense.
As this is a new season, both the coaches and the captains have many hopes and goals. Coach Jeff Beimert hopes the team will be “playing for the division title and conference championship.” Captain Marie Russ (12) wishes the team “will push for every tough situation and come out strong and learning a new skill.” Captain Katelyn Ozment (11) says her main goal for the team is “having better communication on the floor.”
Last season, the finishing record moved the team to a higher division. Captain Maggie Thiele (12) seems sure they will again have a successful season, saying “we will do well; we have skills and talent on this team.”
