The Nicholas County girls’ basketball team had a great season with a record of 17 wins and 7 losses. They were the sectional champions but lost in the regional final. The lady Grizzlies had a very strong schedule this season. We asked Coach McGirl on how he thought the season went, and he said, “It was a good year, but the injuries hurt us in the end.”
After speaking with shooting guard Taylor Brown, we asked her if she planed on being involved in basketball after high school and this is what she said: “I don’t plan on being involved with basketball after high school. I’m just going to focus on academics.” Then, we asked her how she grew as a player and she said, “I struggled with the mental part of the game, but I out-grew that throughout the season in order to make myself a stronger player.” The Lady Grizzlies grew as a team by playing card games and organizing team dinners.
