The three-week sports shutdown went into effect on Saturday, so the girls basketball team did get to play its first game of the season on Friday.
A close loss to Chartiers Valley will push the team to keep working despite the time off, senior Abby Marzina said.
“We will continue to work to get better individually,” Marzina said. “I think our coaches are going to start sending us daily workouts to keep us in shape over the next three weeks.”
While the shutdown is set to last until Jan. 4, Marzina said players recognize that it could potentially last longer. The only way the team will get through it, she said, is with positivity.
“Overall we are obviously upset that they have postponed it, but we are staying optimistic and just hoping for the best,” she said.
The potential for shutdowns or a delay in the season has been on everyone’s mind for a while, she said.
“Just overall Covid has really affected our season, because we have been on edge wondering if they are going to cancel it or postpone it,” Marzina said.
