2018-2019 Girls Basketball
The 2018-2019 Girls Basketball team was a young team that showed a lot of improvement through the whole season, especially with its performance in the final weeks. The team lost early in the season to No. 10 Pekin Eastern by 23 but in sectional lost by only three points in a defensive battle.
Natalie Boesing had a record-breaking year averaging 21 points per game and setting school records for points in a game and season. Brigid Welch had many big games with several double-doubles, and Kaylee Kaiser, Maggie Purichia and Lauren Castleberry improved throughout the season. Newcomers Brooklynn Nolot, Amanda Upton, and Maria Popson all got their first taste of high school basketball and were big contributors. With no seniors the girls are motivated to work hard and have a special season next year.
