The girls varsity basketball team picked up two wins on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

They faced Peters Township on Tuesday, winning 58-51, and defeated Canon-Mac on Wednesday by a score of 58-27.

Senior Sydney Carr said the team’s great ball movement and the ability to find the open teammate on offense were the keys for both wins.

“These wins definitely make us more motivated because it builds confidence in our team and makes us work harder for the next game,” Carr said.

Junior Morgan Altavilla was a stand out in both games due to her all-around play and leadership on the court, Carr said.

Senior Kayla Radomsky said the team had been working on shooting and passing during practice, which translated to the team’s success.

Radomsky also said Carr’s 18 points were crucial to the team’s victory over Canon-Mac.

Still, the team wants to work more on some aspects of their game.

The team needs “to work consistently on both offense and defense, and always having high energy on and off the court,” Radomsky said.

Moving into the playoffs, Carr is feeling “very confident after winning these last three games.”

Radomsky agreed.

“I predict we will go pretty far, which we are excited about,” Radomsky said.
