Though they lost their starting five players from last year, the girls’ basketball team is hoping that underclassmen will fill the roles and bring a spark for SPC.

“Several newcomers in particular have made big impacts on the team,” senior captain Isabelle Metz said.

“Sophomores Gabby Otey and Alice Chambers have helped by executing the offense and getting rebounds, respectively. Freshmen Kate and Carson Copeland as well as sophomores Jessica Vlasek and Caroline Ankoma-Sey provide a devastating unit that wears other teams down with their speed and toughness.”

Even though each player brings an individual arsenal of skills, their best times come when they play as one unit.

“What makes our team so special is that, while we all know our job, we work best as a team,” Metz said.

Girls’ basketball plays their first SPC game against Casady in the Alkek Gym at Episcopal High School at 11:00 a.m, Feb. 14.
