Spartans End Regular Season With Road Win Over Calvin Christian

CALVIN CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL: 26

We've broken our season into two phases: regular season and the best season! Our Spartans ended the regular season tonight with a commanding road win at Calvin Christian. The win is our 8th straight win after a 2-3 start to the season. My favorite thing about this group is they have never looked backwards, only forward at the opportunities ahead of them! I love our momentum heading into the most exciting time of the year...in a basketball junkie's opinion! 
 We struggled with turnovers tonight and executing against the Calvin 3-2 zone, however, our defensive effort was phenomenal! Everyone worked extremely hard on the defensive end and anything Calvin got was earned. Paige Wilson had her hands on everything. Paige bailed us out of several situations by putting in the extra effort to play great team defense! The offense was balanced and we shot the ball pretty well for the first time in a while. Let's keep that going! Kensey Armock shot the ball well and it was Kensey, Bella Vallone, and Ashley Cowdrey that carried the biggest load on the evening, handling the Calvin pressure in the backcourt. All of our guards had to be strong with the ball to ensure we came away with the win. Loved our poise in the second half.

We head into the weekend with a lot of work to do to prepare for a buzz saw of a district. But, if I know anything, this group is ready and I wouldn't want to go into a battle with anyone else!
