On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, the New Haven girls basketball team traveled to Silex, Missouri, to play the Silex Owls. The first game of the night was played by the JV girls who defeated Silex with a score of 51-33. The next game was played by the Varsity girls who ended the night with a win and a score of 60-31.
After the game the athletes were then asked a few questions. The first question asked was how the athletes felt the team played overall.
Junior Ellie Westermeyer said, “I thought we played really well.”
Freshman Lindsey Steinbeck replied, “I think we worked hard.”
Senior McKenzie Overschmidt answered, “I think the team came out ready to play and we play very well as a team.”
The next question asked was if there were any goals the athletes and their team have accomplished so far this season, and if so, what.
Lindsey Steinbeck explained, “We have greatly improved on getting rebounds.”
Ellie Westermeyer replied, “For me, one goal is focusing more on free-throws. I have accomplished this goal in the past few games and hope to keep it up.”
The athletes were then asked if there is anything they want to work on.
McKenzie Overschmidt explained, “I think I want to work on driving the ball to the hoop and shooting the ball [well].”
Lindsey Steinbeck simply replied, “Shooting.”
The last question asked was if anything exciting happened during the game.
McKenzie Overschmidt said, “Two people made buzzer beaters!”
Ellie Westermeyer answered, “Both Mackenzie Wilson and Madison Langenberg made buzzer beaters.”
Congratulations and good luck, Shamrocks, on the rest of your season!
