The past year in girls basketball was one to remember, with a very hard fought season and many senior talent now gone. This season the girls are looking to improve in new and exciting ways, starting with a new head coach. Junior Emma Tokarsky says, “It is for sure going to be a wild one. We have a new coach, and we’re a very young team, as we have no seniors this year.” This is only pushing the girls to improve. Tokarsky is one of the three junior captains on the team and she is planning to lead her fellow Spartans to victory. The team has many strong suits like fellow captains Katie Stamp and Raegan Burkey, and even Maria Torres after her injuries. One player to look for this year as she is starting varsity this year is junior Serene Khatib, a shooting guard. “She has a lot of fire and great basketball skills” says Tokarsky. The girls play a tough schedule this season with many good teams but all the players are hard workers and push to win. Khatib plans to improve her speed, stamina, and overall skill this season. As a captain this year Tokarsky plans to bring great energy, a good work ethic, and most importantly be the best leader she can be. With the team chemistry and heart put into the game the Lady Spartans have a strong season ahead of them.
