Lack of practice hurts girls again

In a lackluster game against Sacramento Adventist High School, Jan. 29, the girls’ basketball team lost, 25-46.

The Cavs previously played the Capitals at home on Jan. 12, when the girls lost, 31-42.

However,  unlike that game, when the teams were evenly matched and very aggressive until the end of the fourth quarter, the Cavs trailed the Capitals for the majority of the Jan. 29 game.

The girls’ main weakness was their poor spacing, which caused several unnecessary turnovers.

Junior Julia Owaidat said that the lack of attendance at practices is why the team isn’t as strong as she had predicted at the beginning of the season.

“When we don’t practice as a team, we won’t win as a team,” she said.

The girls are now 3-5.

Their next home game is Tuesday, Feb. 3, against Cristo Rey High School at 6 p.m.
