With the first five wins of the season down, the varsity women’s basketball team is off to a strong start.

The Wakefield team has been hard at work for months before the season even started. They hope to finish off the season as strong as they started and eventually make it to states.

“I think that we’re going to have a great season,” Captain Gabrielle Donaldson said. “I think that we have the potential to be a championship team and I think we have the work ethic to do so.”

Due to the new head coach this year, Coach Williams, who is a former college basketball player UNC-Chapel Hill, the varsity team believes he has the ability to take them all the way to conference and state champions.

“I think with a new coaching staff, they will push us to work harder and work better as a team,” senior and captain Camryn Jones said. “

I also think we have a chance of being conference champions and going to the state championship”

Although the varsity team does a great job at making the game of basketball look easy, they spend hours every single day putting in work in order for them perform adequately in the game.

“The goal we have set for ourselves is to be conference champions,” Jada Peebles a member of the basketball team said. “We practice for hours a day sometimes six days a week. With the dedication my teammates and I have to win, it makes it easier to work together and be successful.”

Everyone knows there are captains and point guards that some people might think of as “star players.” However, basketball is a team sport and in team sports, the chemistry between the players is the most important element of a successful team.

“We plan on being consistent and learning about how each other plays during practice,” Donaldson said. “Not just going through the motions but actually finding out each other’s strengths and weaknesses so that when we are playing we can know how to make each other better.”

For the Lady Wolverines, the outcome of the season is looking very bright. With their teamwork and will to win, there is a great chance of the varsity women’s basketball team making it all the way to playoffs and doing very well.

“This season we are working a lot harder and having a lot more fun,” said Peris Pavlinac. “So far it is showing and really paying off considering we have a record consisting of five wins and zero losses.”
