This season, the Lady Knights have two games against FHHS, one of which is the Pink Out game held by North at their home court on Feb. 10. The Pink Out game is known to bring a huge crowd and donations. 

“It’s always a big deal to us,” girls basketball coach Danielle Rampley said. 

Howell High has been North’s biggest rival in many sports for as long as some students can remember. This game is seen to be very different compared to others due to it being against Howell. Players share that they are excited to play in this game because of the environment and huge crowd along with the possibility of having bragging rights over Howell.  

“It’s beating Howell. Everyone wants to beat Howell,” girls basketball player and freshman Olivia Graeser said. 

Coach Rampley believes that this could be a close game if the team is prepared and if their shots fall. This year, the team is very young due to them having five new freshman players joining the varsity team, Graeser, Morgan Smith, Courtney Epplin, Addy Jones and Elise Grimshaw. Many of the players also believe this game could be a close one. 

Epplin believes that this game could be a big test. The team will have to be on game speed to come out on top. However, Howell lost a crucial player to their team this year who averaged around 25 points. 

“It’s going to be really tough,” Epplin said. 

As the Lady Knights continue their season leading up to the annual Pink Out game, they are staying strong with a 10-7 record and hoping to improve it leading up to the big game.
