The Williamson Lady Warriors season didn’t go as they would have liked but there is still much that can be learned a built upon even in a losing season.
The Lady Warriors head basketball coach Marisa Allen discussed the high and low points of the 2018-2019 season.
Discussing the Lady Warriors season, Allen said, “The high point would be that we had a few girls who learned so much about the sport and themselves this season.”
Through injuries and a lack of players, the Lady Warriors struggled through a lot of games this season. Those struggles were the most difficult aspect of this season for coach Allen.
Despite the trials, Allen said the biggest takeaway from this season was, “That basketball isn’t always about winning and losing. It is about learning and growth as players and people.”
When asked for one moment that encapsulates this team Allen said, “When we were playing Troy at home and we were supposed to play two games and we lost a player to injury during the varsity game. The girls wanted to play the JV game and they fought through a whole JV game. I think it says a lot about the character of the girls that I had on the team that they wanted to play both games and get as much experience as possible. They never hung their heads or quit on each other.”
Next year Allen anticipates the team will be rebuilding again but she said, “I am hoping that adding some fresh faces will help us build a stronger team.
Although this year was rough for the girls basketball team, coach Allen said, “This group of girls never gave up. They were positive through the whole season, even through the losses.”
