Sophomore Charlotte Bartels started playing competitive basketball last year during her freshman year of high school for the JV/C girls basketball team. This year she is now one of the top girls on the team. According to head varsity girls basketball coach Danielle Rampley, Bartels has improved a lot from last year and is showing a lot of promise for future seasons.

“I think she’ll just keep growing and keep improving and hopefully next year she can move up,” Rampley said.

This year the Knights lost a lot of girls from last season and have both a smaller girls basketball team on varsity and JV. But the Knights are still looking strong and look to improve on their record from last year, grow together as a program and are striving to win districts this year.

“I think we’re more mature, we’ve grown together, this is now my second year of being the head coach, the girls have played [super well] together,” Rampley said. “I just think they’re going to be a better off group of girls all together.”

Overall, both the Knights girls junior varsity and varsity basketball teams have high goals and expectations going into this season. Bartels herself has especially loves playing basketball at FHN and has is looking to strive as a player and leader in the program in all of her highschool years. As of now, Bartels is looking to excel this season on the JV girls basketball team and for her and her team to have a spectacular season.

“I’m equally confident in everyone and everyone’s potential and everyone’s skill level,” Bartels said.
