The Girls JV Basketball team hosted their first home game Wednesday, January 9th against Wheeler School. Struggling to defend against Wheeler’s well practiced offense and unable to pull sufficient energy to out perform their strong defense, Hyde quickly fell behind. Throughout the half Hyde was able to pull together to score four points by Jing Yang ’13 and Lily Sun ’14 and find a better rhythm. They finished the first half with a score of 22-4. The second half Hyde came out strong and worked together to hold Wheeler from scoring for the first 7 minutes. While Hyde was unable to score in the second half, the team worked hard together up and down the court losing with a score of 40-4. Throughout the game Yoomi Ji ’13and LiYuan Zhang ’14 showed outstanding effort with tenacious and competitive play.
The team is looking forward to working on improving their skills in preparation for their next game on Monday, January 14th against St. Andrews School.
