LAKE MICHIGAN CATHOLIC – The season for the girls varsity basketball team at Lake Michigan Catholic is almost over and the girls are expecting districts. Throughout their season, the girls have had their ups and downs.

At the beginning to the end of the season, the girls and Mr. Joe Jarvie, the varsity coach, had set goals for the team and each one of the players as they continue their journey.

Coach Jarvie has positive emotions towards his team and their achievements. Certain goals that were placed on the each individual player were mainly goals of improvements.

Throughout the team, Coach Jarvie agreed that they have improved on knowing and playing the game better and knowing how to attack the defense of their opponent. However, Coach Jarvie felt that there are great things coming from the girls varsity.

“The one thing the team has showed me are the right things they do, they improve on.”

Along with the team’s improvements Coach Jarvie had described the team as resilient. Anna LaSata, junior, understood the descriptive word Coach Jarvie used on the team.

“I think he used that word because when other teams challenges us we never give up and a perfect example of resilience was against River Valley.”

Currently being 6-6, the Lady Lakers have faced their toughest opponents, such as Michigan Lutheran and Berrien Springs. LaSata believed that Michigan Lutheran is their most toughest opponent because they are disciplined and have an extraordinary basketball program.

However she thought Berrien Springs was not a tough team but she felt that if the team were ready and more intense, the outcome of the game would be different. Parents, coaches, and fans are proud of the girls varsity basketball team.

Not only are the people on the stands proud, but the girls working their hardest on the court feel proud of their accomplishments and improvements. Please come and support the Lady Lakers as they draw closer to the district championship, February 27th.
