On Saturday December 2nd, Highland’s girls’ varsity basketball team faced Valparaiso. It was a strong game on both sides, but in the end Valpo beat Highland by a total of eight points, the score being 47 to 39.

The game had many ups and downs for Highland. Scoring was very consistent for both sides, always leaving Highland just a few steps behind Valpo.

Juniors Morgan Rinkema and Makenzie Pickens believe that the team could benefit if there was more communication and teamwork throughout the game.

“Valpo had a lot of second chances because we gave it to them by not boxing out. I feel like if we didn’t give them that many chances the we would have won it,” Pickens said.
Both also agree that the team has changed a lot throughout the years but still is a family that continues to improve.

On the plus side, the players are proud of their defense during the game and had good traps.

“To be able to hold a team like Valpo to only 47 points is a huge take away,” Rinkema said.
Both girls are proud to be a part of the team and continue to get better and further challenge other strong teams.
