The Green Hornets 8U select girls basketball team wrapped up its inaugural season as county champs with a record of 11-0.
The team of Riley Buck, Chelsea Coward, Presley Davis, Claire Farley, Cate Gage, Ella Hartman, Alex Murray, Finley Silk and Carly Weeks employed a well-balanced offense and a suffocating defense to outscore the opposition by a whopping 205-22 margin in 11 wins.
“I was a little concerned prior to the season as this would be the first year most of the girls would be playing on a 10-foot rim as well as being allowed outside the lane for defense, but they far exceeded my expectations,” said head coach Stephanie Hartman, who coached the team with Eric Silk and Darby Davis. “The girls came to every practice eager to learn and brought intensity to every game they played. Even though it was their first year playing together as a team, the girls were always positive and encouraging with each other and were unselfish on offense, with multiple girls scoring each game.”
