For many girls, including myself, basketball is a way of life. At the high school level many girls are competing for scholarships and varsity. Coach Miner Webster positively encourages the girls to achieve their goals. Coach Webster recently celebrated his 789th win, which made him all time leader of most wins in Arizona.

Even though basketball try-outs haven’t happened yet, the girls are hard at work. They practice twice a week and play in a local tournament. To prepare for the season, the team has been weight-training and playing scrimmage games. Freshman Aliyah Taveras said “It’s a competitive and contact sport. I like that I can leave all my emotions on the court.”

The Lady Hawks can’t wait for the season to start!
