The 2016-2017 girls varsity basketball season is coming to an end with 9 wins and 13 losses. Junior Arionne Fowlkes said, “The season went well; I wish it could’ve went better, but we are improving while playing in districts.” Despite their small team, only consisting of 11 members: five seniors, four juniors, one sophomore, and one fresman, they played to their best abilities. Varsity coach Jason Bingaman said, “We aren’t very big as a team, but we make up for it with our speed and our athleticism. We play well together.” Coach also mentioned that Otsego was their toughest opponent because of their overall team height.

On Friday, March 3, the team traveled to Edwardsburg High School for the district championship game. The TRHS Wildcats brought home the win, scoring 41-32. Coach Bingaman said, “We did a nice job as individuals playing to our strengths and contributing in ways that benefited the team.” The team continued onto regionals Tuesday, March 7, playing their toughest opponent, Otsego. Although they played their best, the Wildcats lost 38-49.

This concludes the 2016-2017 basketball season. Even though they lost regionals, the team did come a long way this season, even going as far as making it to districts, something that hasn’t been done in a while.  “We are playing our best basketball, and that is what you want as a coach,” said Bingaman.
