The varsity girls basketball team secured the district championship title on Friday evening. The girls played Kirkwood, who are the two time defending state champions of the girls title. It was a lively environment lots of fans to support both teams and a loud and supportive student section as well. Head Coach Brian Guilfoyle and his team have been on the doorstep of a district championship for the past couple years but have fallen short. So it came as somewhat of a relief to the fan base and team to get over the hump this season.

Guilfoyle knew that this year would also be very difficult, especially in districts,  “When you’re in a district as tough as the one that we were in… we knew it was going to be a hard fought battle.”

The championship game on Friday was fast paced at times and displayed skillful play from both teams. The crowd was very into the game for all four quarters as well, pumping adrenaline and intensity into the gym.

The game was also very unique because of how it was won. For starters, the scoring between the players was not quite what it usually is, senior guard Olivia Stephens only put up six points, half her usual scoring. But other players stepped up and scored at crucial moments such as senior Talia Emch and Kennedy Moore.

Now with the district championship is won, the girls still have work to do. They will play a solid Marquette team on Wednesday, March 6 at Lindenwood at 7:45.
