Girls basketball entered its new season with a new coaching staff and expect to advance to states for the third year in a row.

“I’m excited for the season. We have a good, young group of girls that are ready to play against the best,” said senior guard Kyla McMakin.

Both players and coaches have set goals, including winning regionals, going to states, and beating Landstown this season.

“We are working hard to achieve Varsity’s goal to beat Landstown,” said varsity head coach Lisa Merriweather. “I plan on going to states and taking the team further than they’ve been before.”

Lady dolphins feel the excitement and pressure to bring home a ring for the first time in girls basketball history.

“I’m excited to grow as a team and to hopefully go to states again for my senior year,” said senior forward Elizabeth Carrier.

With states as a goal, the team looks forward to building bonds.

“My favorite part of playing basketball is the relationships and bonds I have made over my four years. The relationships are everlasting,” said senior shooting guard Kendle Dalrymple.
