The Girls Basketball team finished last season with a record of 12-14, and eventually lost in the first round of the section playoff to St. Croix Prep. Since then, the team has lost 11 players, leading the program to only boast one competitive team. Because of this drastic change, the season has started off very rough for the team.

Sophomore Lindsay Browne said, “We are having a little bit of a rougher season in comparison to other years. Our current record is 1-8, but I am optimistic for the rest of the season because we have had some really close games. This season is really focused on smaller wins and developing as a team.”

The team, like most, created a Spotify Playlist at the beginning of the season to use for warmups and pre-game rituals. Because the playlist that they created for this season has yet to be approved by the administration, they have decided to use last year’s playlist for most games. The playlist, mostly made up of rap songs, incorporates several different artists like Migos, DaBaby, Big Sean, and many more. “I think my top two songs from the playlist are Icon by Jaden and Pure Water by Mustard and Migos,” Browne said.

After a tough 38-49 loss against St. Croix Prep, the team hopes to bounce back at 6 p.m. on February 22, against Avail Academy. Although no fans can be in attendance due to COVID-19 restrictions, all games can be streamed through the NFHS Network.

A full version of the playlist is available to stream on Spotify.
