On January 3rd, 2019, the New Haven Shamrocks’ girls basketball team started off the new year by playing against the Cuba Wildcats at New Haven High School. The Varsity girls won their game 60-49. The JV girls also won their game (which was only 2 quarters) with a score of 22-10.
After the game the athletes were asked a few questions about their game. The first question asked was how they felt the team played overall. “I think we played very well together,” answered junior McKenzie Overschmidt.
Freshman Emma Rohlfing responded, “The JV team played alright in the 1st quarter, but in the 2nd quarter, we played a lot better.”
They were then asked if there was anything they felt they needed to work on.
Sophomore Ellie Westermeyer answered, “We definitely need to work on boxing out and hustling back on defense.”
Junior McKenzie Overschmidt expressed, “I need to work on better defense and seeing the court as a whole.”
The last question asked was if there were any goals from the beginning of the season that they have accomplished.
Freshman Emma Rohlfing said, “Yes, and that is throwing elbows and becoming a lot stronger down low.”
Good luck, Shamrocks, on the rest of your basketball season!
