Over the summer, the Lady Knights basketball team had the opportunity to come together in a special way. They bonded by traveling as a team to the University of Colorado Boulder for a pre-season camp on June 23-June 25 and have continued to bond into the season.

“We were able to form these new memories and experiences as a team,” Junior Corrinne Stevens said. “This leads to stronger bonds and friendships that are beneficial and translate well onto the court.”

This season the team practices six to seven days a week and they have the goal of becoming closer as a basketball family. They hope to work like sisters and learn to be there for each other on and off the court.

“This season I’m really just looking forward to seeing how everyone comes together throughout the season and just to see how everything we’ve worked so hard for comes together,” Senior Katie Richardson said.

The girls are excited for what the season has to bring. They currently feel that the team bond is stronger than they have ever experienced and this season’s results will be positive because of their sisterhood. This bond began with their trip to Colorado over the summer. Not only did this trip help the team on the court, they also believe it will help them in their future. Many players got to see a place they have never seen before and have new experiences.

“I enjoyed the opportunity to surround myself with a new atmosphere as far as basketball and life is concerned,” Stevens said.

Overall, the team feels that continuing trips like Colorado will continue to grow the Lady Knights basketball program and improve their bond. Experiences like going across the country allow the team to not only be just teammates, but truly friends.

“It’s a great way to bond and share new memories with our team while also sharing an adventure,” Stevens said.
