Pattonville Girls’ Basketball took Ws the last week of March during conference games, leading them to make it all the way to the district competition. It took the primarily sophomore team hard work and a sense of harmony both on the court and off, but they made it.

The team focused on a mentality of unity throughout the season. To get a win, “It’s a matter of everybody being on the same page as far as going about a win,” Jasmine Grey believes. “We’re all starting to fit into our roles and learn each other on and off the court so that helps. For us, it’s always important to go in with the underdog mentality.”

The girls had a lot of challenges. Coach Boyce believes their biggest one was “our lack of experience on the varsity level, but as a young team we had success and growing pains.”

The team ended the season with a 13-14 record, with a win at conference to close it, “I think that it’s an accomplishment for our young team,” Jasmine Grey stated. Her goal for the team was to win conferences and play their hardest.

Junior Charlie Heiligenstein and sophomores Cami Stacker, Jasmine Grey, and Paige Boyce¬† were selected to the All-District basketball team. Grey was honored to be selected, but her goals do not end there. “I feel that there’s much more that can be accomplished but this is what I’ve been working for. It’s a blessing,” Grey explained.

With only two seniors on the team, most of the girls will be able to play again together next year, which can help with their unity and building upon their experiences from this year. “We’ve made a lot of progress even though we’re so young,” Grey said. “This is just the beginning for us.”
