The St. James Girls Basketball Team began practice on Monday, November 11. They recently had a scrimmage in the Event Center against St. Claire but their first official game of the season was November 22, at Nicollet. C-squad sadly lost, B-squad won a close game, and Varsity beat Nicollet, 53-41.
As the season begins, we all are excited to see how the season will go. The 5 starters for this upcoming season are Kadi Anderson, Chloe Mickelson, Kelsey Grunewald, Ellie Becker, and Jaelyn Haler. Out of the 5, Kadi and Chloe are the captains.
The key to basketball is teamwork which is why Chloe’s goal this year is to work as a team and to make the extra pass to make a shot. Kadi really enjoys being apart of the team and the fun of the game. They lost one senior from last year, Renata Hernandez, but they’ve had a couple of underclassmen returning for Varsity.
Go support the girls on their first home game! It will be held in the Event Center, against New Ulm Cathedral on Tuesday, November 26!
