Practice Times & Hoops Hours

by Rhonda Rompola, Head Women's Basketball Coach

With so many facility conflicts we have had a lot of early morning practices. It really does test your mental toughness.

It’s hard to hide my excitement about this year’s team. We won’t have to rely so heavily on freshmen, so they can learn at their own pace. Last year we had NO seniors, and this year we have five senior leaders. It’s great to have Katie Gross back in practice. Our “newbies” (Haley, La and Red) are wide-eyed because we are moving a little faster than normal.

This past Friday and Saturday we scrimmaged against our male practice players. They are fast, strong and very good basketball players, and are the best competition we can face. It certainly showed everything we need to work on, so the next couple of days it is back to basics and fundamentals. he team has to earn back the 5-on-5 play.

FYI: We’re having an intra-squad scrimmage at 10 AM on Sat., October 27th. It’s earlier than usual because of facility usage, but we’d love to have you come out for it.

One last thing – we had a great turnout at our first Hoop Happy Hour and I think everyone really had a good time. So here we go again – the November “Hoop Hour(s)” will be Wed., Nov. 7th, same time (5:30 – 7:30), same place (Trinity Hall, Mockingbird Station). See you there!
