On Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 11, the DVSS Dynos Ju­nior A girls bas­ket­ball team hosted a game against Three Hills School. At the half way mark, the Dynos were ahead 18-11 and kept the lead with a fi­nal score of 29-20.

Coach Ele­sha Wright told The Mail, “It was a good game over­all, both teams played well. I was happy to see how my girls were able to move the ball around and they started to pen­e­trate the key more, al­low­ing us to uti­lize our post play­ers and score points in­side.”

Wright ex­pressed, “It was ex­cit­ing to see the girls start shoot­ing from the out­side and we had 3 suc­cess­ful 3-point shots from # 12 Emilya Wright which re­ally helped keep the point spread for us to win the game. We have just started this new mo­tion of­fense and the girls are run­ning it well and is prov­ing to be suc­cess­ful so far. As well in our de­fense, we ad­justed to more of a loose man to man / zone as we are short on leg power and the girls are ex­e­cut­ing this very suc­cess­fully as well.”

Ac­cord­ing to Coach Wright, DVSS Dynos Ju­nior A girls have had a few in­juries this sea­son re­sult­ing in a shal­low bench at times but the girls have pulled to­gether and con­tin­ued to bat­tle hard re­sult­ing in a few wins put to our name this sea­son so far.

“Each game I see im­prove­ment some­times as a team, other times in­di­vid­u­ally and as a coach that is ex­cit­ing to see and re­minds me of why I en­joy coach­ing so

much.” said Wright.

On Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 25, the last league game will be at home against Three Hills Prairie Chris­tian Academy.
