The girls basketball team started its season with two convincing wins over the weekend, defeating South Park and Elizabeth Forward.

Junior Anna Lucarelli said the Highlanders executed well.

“We really dominated both games,” Lucarelli said.

The team had really strong defense during both games, which allowed them to score easy points on turnovers, Luccarelli said. 

Junior Abigail Marzina agreed.

“We also had really good communication. We worked on communication during practices,” Marzina said.

With the big wins, the Highlanders gained confidence in themselves and their system.

“What we did worked, and that gives us confidence going into our next game,” Marzina said.

The team play Peters Township in its first section game Thursday at home.
