The Davis High girls’ basketball team has started off their season strong. With their previous game at Northridge on Friday, January 25th, and region champs in February, the team is readily preparing for the next several games up until state tournaments in February. Could this season become a legacy for the Davis High girls’ basketball team, or will it just become a part of their history?
This season so far has been very interesting and quite frankly, surprising. Since Farmington was built, many of the players on the DHS team had to transfer over to Farmington, leaving Davis at a disadvantage. They started their 2018-19 season with virtually a new team, with the majority being brand new players. While this sounds like a recipe for disaster, the team has risen and become one of the strongest and most successful teams in the region. Hannah Loveland, a point guard for the Davis High basketball team, gives some insight
“I think people expected us to be a young team and kind of inexperienced, but I think we’ve proven a lot of people wrong”. Said Loveland.
While winning games and succeeding are some of the most important aspects of a team, working together and cooperating on and off the court are still a very crucial part of being an effective basketball team. Team lunches, sleepovers, and dinners together are all a part of how this basketball team bonds to create a strong competitive advantage.
With the season passing the halfway point, the team is confident that state will be no tough challenge. In their division there is 6 teams, and they must make the top 4 to move onto state. Presently they sit on 2nd best in the region. The Davis High girls’ basketball team has surpassed all expectations and will set a high standard for the rest of Davis High School. Go team!
