The Royals’ girls basketball team holds a record of 9-0 right now, recently beating Park Center 60-47.

Many girls on the team believe that they are having a great season so far.

“The season is going great! More of the girls are starting to step up their roles and are becoming the players that they are capable of being for the team!,” said Dee Dee Winston, senior.

Even though the team is dominating right now, as always, there are certain skills the team wants to work on. An important part of basketball is communication. The team thinks one thing they could focus on doing is having better communication on the court, especially defensively.

If they can communicate efficiently, such as letting teammates know what was coming, or what sides of the court need help, and knowing who the players are matching up with, the game will run more smoothly.

One setback that the Royals could have is having Paige Bueckers, freshman, out of the game with a foot injury.

The Royals’ next game is at Hastings on Dec. 28.
