On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the girls’ basketball team defeated Alonso High School 65-22, giving them an overall record of 6-0 and a district record of 2-0.  

I think your team’s biggest strength is our relationship with one another,” junior forward Silvia Farfante said. “We are so close off the court and I think that reflects when we are on the court. We play very unselfish and we are always willing to do things for the team rather than ourselves. 

The team is currently first place in their district and has won their first six games averaging 70 points per game, while holding opponents to an average of just 27 points.  

My favorite part of the season so far has been our bonding practice,” Farfante said. “We spent a whole practice just working as a team and getting closer to one another. It was much needed for our chemistry and very fun. 

The girls attribute this success to the bond that their team has formed, but they are still working on improving every day. 

I think we could improve on our communication,” Farfante said. “Although we communicate pretty well, there have been times where we make mistakes because we didn’t talk, and we need to limit those.”  

The girls’ next game will be another district game on Friday, Dec. 11 at Steinbrenner High School. Steinbrenner is currently second place in Class 7A District 7, with a record of 6-2. 

I am most looking forward to the games we are facing in front of us,” Farfante said. “We have some hard teams to play and we are all very excited. We love playing hard competition and giving our all on the court.
