Girls Basketball Tryouts
Girls basketball tryouts are this week on Wednesday from 3:00-6:00 in the Kayhi gym.
Senior captain Nadire Zhuta says that the key to tryouts is a “Mind Over Matter” mindset.
“The most important thing you need to have to be able to try out for the team is discipline,” said Zhuta. “You have to be able to tell yourself that you can do it and push yourself mentally. It’s all in your mind, if you tell yourself you”ll get through it, you will, but if you doubt yourself and tell yourself, you can’t, then you won’t make it far in tryouts.”
Senior Lianne Guevarra thinks that the best thing to do is to compete regardless of tiredness.
“I would want the kids to know to try their best,” said Guevarra. “Regardless of the people around them. Coaches like kids who try, it’s not all about talent. It’s about kids who fight through the drill no matter what he [the coach] puts in front of you”
Boys Basketball Tryouts
Boys basketball tryouts are this Wednesday in the Kayhi gym from 6:00-9:00.
Boys team head coach Eric Stockhausen talks about tryouts.
“I’ve already written up the tryout plan but it depends on the number of guys you have, how many returners and where your starting point is,’ said Stockhausen.
Senior Kristian Pihl is is very prepared for his last high school basketball tryouts.
“I am very prepared,” said Pihl. “This is my last rodeo, I feel I have a good idea of what will be thrown at me, and I’ve never been more excited to start this year.”
