Girls basketball team takes win over Olathe East

The girls basketball team uprooted a strong Olathe East team 50-38 Thurs. night in front of a packed house in the BV gym. With several minutes played at a 10-point deficit, the team found consistency in their shots and defense before getting the win.
Senior Lauren Wormington held the spotlight on the night after draining numerous three-pointers to help anchor the team’s second half comeback.
Coach Andy Unrien believes that the team struggled in the first half, but showed their true potential as the game went on.
“I thought that the second half was really indicative of what we can do as a team,” he said. “We started to get great pressure on defense and we got more energy.”
After asking for a large crowd in the Winter Activities assembly, the student body responded by packing the student section with many in costume for “Lifeguard Night”.
Unrien is greatly appreciative of the fans’ role in the win.
“It was huge once we got into that run,” he said. “[Olathe East] really wasn’t expecting it. It really knocked them on their heels.”
The team will play at the Olathe South Invitational on Tuesday.
