Springville girls modified basketball
SPRINGVILLE — The Springville girls modified basketball team has been performing very well this year, according to coach Karen Reynolds.
“Despite all the snow days and rescheduled games, we are finally halfway through our season,” she said. So far, the girls’ record is 4-2.
According to the coach, Holland and East Aurora are the top teams in the league, and “these ladies gave East Aurora a run for their money. We are hoping to capture a win against them, next time we visit them,” she said.
Controlling the floor and handling the ball for the team are eighth-grader Sydney Rosati and seventh-grader Grace Zabawa. “Both these ladies are doing an excellent job seeing the floor and leading their team to a victory,” she said.
Ryan Stedman has been the team’s main point-scorer. She finds a way to get open and drive the ball in for a shot, according to the coach.
“Our team has some height this year, which always helps,” Reynolds said.
MacKenzie Engel returns to the center position and has been working on dumping in some points. Emma Hawkes, Leah Frank, Abby Moscato and Allison Emmick bring height and agility to the team. Ronelle Tadt and Lynea Cruz bring back their experience from last year. Morgan Christ, Katie Griffith, Hannah Yetter and Katelyn Neamon are new to the team, and are developing skills and getting stronger, each game and practice, noted Reynolds.
“This team has not only athletes, but they are kind and considerate and have great sportsmanship,” Reynolds said. “I am proud to be their coach and having a lot of fun coaching them.”
