Hailey Kim, Reporter

The girls basketball team is excited for their 2022-2023 season, and it is evident in their practices, teamwork, and team chemistry.

This season, with a multitude of new team members and a new head coach Daniel Rho, they are mainly focused on learning how to play and work well together. 

The players truly illustrate what being on a team is all about.

Many of the girls’ favorite aspect about being on the team is the strong friendships they’ve formed due to tough circumstances they’ve had to deal with. 

They became close through a variety of events, including games and trips, but going through numerous coaching changes together was definitely the biggest bonding experience.

Senior captain Bella Hokama said that her main goal for this season is to be a leader and to support her teammates. 

She’s been playing basketball ever since she was young, so she understands the importance of great leadership and team comradery. 

 “Our team is mainly underclassmen, so it is a building year,‘’ Hokama said. 

“No one is super-serious so that makes us work well together.” 

Additionally, the team has some new members who joined from Cross Country, who are looking to make this season the best it can be.

All of the players acknowledge that they are getting better and evolving more with each game. 

They are able to do so because of their support, cooperation, and trust. The team this year is a special one, and they can’t wait for the rest of the season.
