On Dec. 14, the girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams travelled to Shawnee Mission West to play the Vikings.  The girl’s team lost by ten points, 43-53.

“We have played some good basketball at times so far this year.  We played our most disciplined half of the year against Shawnee Mission West and were rewarded with a 27-24 halftime lead.  Unfortunately, we have been undisciplined and we hurry ourselves and it has cost us. We will be working on becoming a more disciplined team, as well as finishing off plays”, said head girls’ basketball coach Jason Tatkenhorst.

The boys’ team also lost, but in a closer game, 56-60. The game consisted of three technical fouls, two for the Bobcats and one for the Vikings. Seniors Nolan Ford and Jace Friesen both fouled out in the 4th quarter.

“We need to work on understanding mismatches and getting ourselves in positions to score against those mismatches when teams are applying great pressure on us,” said head boys’ basketball coach Michael McBride. “Our intensity in each and every game has to get more consistent, so we are hoping a break over Christmas will get us refocused and ready to make a run.”
