Upholding tradition can be the toughest opponent in sports. Along with internal pressure, you become the target of every opponent.
The 2018-2019 Christ Church girls basketball team may be on the road to finding the right formula. In a program with two state titles and 100 wins the past four seasons, this year’s squad has barely missed a beat on the way to a 20-4 record. Those losses were all to Class AAAAA and AAAA opponents, while the Cavaliers are 13-0 in Region 1-AA with one game remaining.
“We all communicate really well,” said junior guard Marissa Powe, a third-year starter. “We are all close friends outside of basketball and can tell each other what we need to do on the court without problems.”
“Our bench is a big part, too,” said freshman forward McCall King. “Even if they don’t get in, they really hype us up and cheer for us.”
