WCS Girls basketball teams show improvement

JV squad demonstrated dedication

The WCS Junior Varsity Girls basketball players showed their dedication and perseverance during the 2009-10 season, Coach Mary ann Bump said as she presented awards to her team.

Most Improved for Junior Varsity went to 10th grader Montana Sheridan, and the "Bench Buster" award for playing strong during substitutions,went to Brittany Tschirhart.

The "Iron Woman" Sportsmanship Award went to ninth grader Chiarra Russo - she didn't miss a single practice - and the Rookies of the Year awards were presented to Kerrigan Ross and Mika Morehouse.

Bump said all the players showed considerable character this season.

"I'm so proud of the girls in their drive and dedication to improve," she said.

Modified squad boosts level of play

Warrensburg's 2009-10 Modified Basketball Team also showed their character, Coach Christene Baker said, as they battled the constrictions of low numbers and worked hard to build skills.

She said they showed remarkable improvement from mid-season on, beginning abruptly with the game against Argyle.

"The girls started the season with limited experience, but they grew a lot in their skills and teamwork," she said. "Then suddenly in the Argyle game, our players started passing and shooting well."

During that game, seventh grader Liz Turner scored 31 points, Baker said at the recent awards banquet, when the coach presented trophies.

The Most Improved awards went to seventh grader Kaylene Norton and Amanda Springer. Sportsmanship awards were granted to team captains eighth graders Whitney Markwica and Makayla Baker.
