The girls basketball team scrimmaged South Fayette and Thomas Jefferson at South Fayette over Thanksgiving break.

Senior Lauren Gilbert saw many strengths and weaknesses during these scrimmages, even though the teams did not keep score.

“The team chemistry was there,” Gilbert said of the Highlanders.

Along with that, she had praise for Amanda Wood and Abbey Larkin.

“Abbey got to the basket very well and Amanda did well rebounding,” Gilbert said.

Although the team struggled with transition defense, they look to work on that at practice.

“We learned how much work we need to put in to be successful this season,” Gilbert said.
