The Jacobs girls Varsity basketball team played their season like a team. Their final record was 3-24, not the best record in Jacobs’ history, but they had strong team work.
It was a heart break for the team to lose against Dundee-Crown, but they did beat Crown twice before hand. The girls are especially proud of their great comeback against Johnsburg this season, ending that game 57-54.
“Overall it was a pretty good season; we played our hearts out and gave what we got,” said junior Tiffany Frighetto. “It’s the fact that we tried, that’s what really counts.”
The team not only worked hard on the court, they were also conscious about their grades; all girls were academically eligible to play this season. The girls also did a great job in their contributions to Adopt-a-Family during the holiday season.
After this season the girls will be saying goodbye to five of their players, who will be graduating this year.
“We owe a lot to the leadership of our current senior class, but it’s now time to focus on next season and getting better this off-season,” said Coach Joseph Benoit.
The girls ended their season with a positive attitude, knowing they tried their best and worked as a team.
“I’m really sad that the season is over, but I’m looking forward to summer camps and next season,” said sophomore Lauren Van Vlierbergen.
