    Last night there was an incredible face-off between the SLOHS girl basketball team and Morro Bay pirates. The game was held at home, and the Tigers fell short 44-40 to Morro Bay, nice try girls!

  This game was part of Rivals Week, which occurred this week.  Expressions interviewed players about their thoughts on the game!

  Expressions: How do you feel about your performance in tonight’s game?

  Assistant Coach Abby Miller: You know, I’m really bummed that they lost but they played really hard. But they did super good!

  Junior Kamaile Abac: In the beginning, I think I played pretty good. It was a little hard being pretty short compared to all the tall people that are there, but I was able to shift through.

  Junior Jennifer Stambaugh: I feel like I did pretty good! I did like how I tried out some new things.

  Expressions: What do you think you guys could’ve done better to secure the win?

  Miller: I think what hurt us was we got tired on defenses, and we let too many threes go by.

  Abac: I think we should’ve kept the momentum we had in the first half, because we’re doing super good but we lost base in the third quarter and I think that’s why we lost.

  Stambaugh: I feel like during the second half of the game, we could’ve have played better defensively.

  Expressions: How did the team’s strategy play out on the court tonight?

  Miller: Well, I wasn’t here for the first half, but from what I’ve heard, it went flawlessly the first half.

  Abac: It went well actually! Because we added new plays we learned yesterday, and we were able to execute them pretty well and score of them.

  Stambaugh: Well it went off a little, but overall it was okay to say the least.

  Expressions: How do you keep your focus and intensity up during crucial moments of the game?

  Miller: I think it stems from the energy coming from our bench and knowing that your teammates support each other.

  Abac: I just tell myself I’m gonna win and do it for my team since I don’t wanna disappoint the team and try to make a positive impact. 

  Stambaugh: I just do it for my teammates and also the aggression gets me moving a lot.

  Expressions: Is there a message you’d like to send to your fans or teammates following tonight’s game?

  Miller: Thanks for coming in! And thanks for supporting, especially on senior night, to the team. I just want them to know that they did their best. They played hard, and they should be proud of themselves.

  Abac: I think it was great, and the energy was amazing, and we just need more of that to be able to push through the game.

  Stambaugh: Thank you guys for coming out and supporting us!
