For every coach in high school and college, they hold their players to a high standard. Along with the rigorous training they are put through on the court or on the field, coaches expect this same effort in the classroom.  Despite this, not every team makes this expectation a reality. For the FHN girls varsity basketball team, this is a reality.

“I believe our team shows the true definition of being student athletes,” head coach Danielle Rampley said. “Our team knows the expectation of working hard in the classroom as well as the basketball court. Maintaining over a 4.0 GPA is a team goal and has been sustained for the past five seasons. I expect hard work in the classroom and on the hardwood.”

The girls have an average GPA of 4.0 for the team. This is an achievement only the girls tennis team at FHN has also accomplished. With an accomplishment like this, goal setting and effort prior to the season is definitely part of the team’s culture.

“A lot of our goals we set for ourselves before the season are GPA based,” junior guard Addie Butler said. “It’s definitely important to Coach Rampley for us to be well-rounded athletes.”

With high aspirations, to achieve their goals, the girls have a close knit group who are all focused on success, on and off the floor.

“Our coaches make it clear that school comes first,” junior Camille Krekeler said. “I think our team is a great group of hardworking girls on and off the court.”
