It has been a tough season for Perry Central High School girls basketball team, as the Lady Bulldogs have yet to pick up their first win of the season.
They currently have a record of 0-17 with a handful of games yet to play. Some might assume that so much adversity could get to a player or coach, but coach Mary Smith understands the patience required when it comes to seasons like this.
“The girls have been struggling this year, because so many of them are 9th and 10th graders,” said Smith. “I genuinely believe that in a couple of years, they will be a force to be reckoned with.”
Finding success on the court is not always measured by what’s shown in the win-loss column. According to senior Ellecia Johnson, her coach makes sure to teach her team lessons that not only apply to the game of basketball, but to life beyond that as well.
“Coach taught us to never give up, no matter what,” said Johnson. “I also figured out that basketball isn’t just a sport, it’s about family and fun. We always love one another and have a good time.”
As for winning and losing, there are still some games to go, and the team’s hope still remains high.
“We still have games to go, and we’re not giving up,” Johnson said.
With four games left in the season, Smith and her girls hope to go out with a bang.
