I’m just excited to see what they can accomplish with their hard work ethic”

— Head coach Kevin Bordewick

The girls basketball team plays Olathe Northwest in their first game of the season tonight at 5:30 p.m.

With no seniors on the court this year, head coach Kevin Bordewick said he hopes younger players can take on leadership roles.

“We are a really young team; we have no seniors. I’m just excited to see what they can accomplish with their hard work ethic,” Bordewick said.

Bachelor agrees and said that she is confident that the team will have other individuals become leaders on the team.

“We have players that can step up and fill the void,” Bachelor said.

The team has been practicing for three weeks, increasing their team chemistry and trying to foster a positive work ethic.

If we don’t allow Olathe Northwest second chance opportunities on offense, we will have a good chance of picking up our first win”

— Junior Megan Lucas

“I think we’ll have really good team chemistry this year,” sophomore post Carly Bachelor said.

Tonight’s game will be a good learning experience and will show the players what needs to be improved.

“Olathe Northwest is very aggressive and athletic,” junior guard Megan Lucas said.

Defense is a key to the game for Rural.

“If we don’t allow Olathe Northwest second chance opportunities on offense, we will have a good chance of picking up our first win,” Lucas said.
