The Little Chute Girls Varsity Basketball team has a record of 3 winning games and a loss of 8 games as of now. Each and every practice, they work on the things that went wrong to be sure to come out with a win in the next game. The captains, who are also the seniors, Clare Hietpas, Kendra Hurray, Paige Reynebeau, and Kaitlyn Pynenberg, push the rest of the team and themselves every day to help them improve. Junior, Dora Gomm, shares with us her favorite memory of the season thus far. She said, “I had a lot of fun with the team when we went to the overnight tournament that was in Brookfield Central.” She also added that it was a good bonding experience with the rest of the girls. During that tournament, they didn’t do so well against the Division 1 teams, which is understandable. From that time, they gained a good learning experience and realized more of what they need to work on. The team would agree that during practice they need to take the time to condition more to be less tired and to bring up the intensity to work more as a team during games.
As for the Junior Varsity team, they have a record of 5 wins and 6 losses. They take their hard work they put in at practice and bring it to every game. Megan Lonigro, sophomore, says that they’ve had a pretty good season so far. She also says that her favorite memory of the season so far has been the team meals they’ve had because it’s nice to hang out with her team outside of the court. It is quite a change from freshman basketball because they are now preparing to play on the varsity team which means working extra hard and going above and beyond.
The Freshman team has come out with 2 wins so far. Molly Romenesko thinks their struggle is because they need better offense. During practice she hopes that’s what they can focus on so they can score more points in games; however, she said her favorite memory of the season was one of their wins: beating Kiel. The team plans on working hard at practice to improve and come out with more wins before the end of the season.
