Keeping their heads up

Senior Josie Miller goes for a layup shot during the girls basketball game on Nov. 21 at Perry Meridian High School. The Lady Cards lost the game 42-32.

On Wednesday, the Lady Cards basketball team fell in a rivalry game against the Perry Meridian High School Falcons.

The Cards are still coming off a big adjustment from last year from losing their starting five and their first three off the bench.

“It’s a new group, and they are adjusting to new roles and new responsibilities, but with that comes opportunity … they just (have) to be ready to step up when it’s their turn,” head coach Adam Morelock said.

Morelock says that one big piece of the game was free throws. At the beginning of the game the team was doing well at getting to the line and making them, but in the second half that was not the case.

The team made four out of 11 free throws, and in a close game those points are huge.

With the team missing multiple free throws, they also gave the Falcons multiple second chances on offensive rebounds, which adds up.

In the end, the final score of the game was 42-32 and a tough loss for the Lady Cards.

Junior Sophia Nguyen felt like she played pretty well in the first half, but her game got away from her in the second half.

“I think we all got pretty down after a few turnovers,” Nguyen said. “I think if we just kept our heads up, and kept playing the basketball that we know, then we would have been fine.”

Morelock says that one of the biggest ways they are going to plan for their next game is to look to see who is going to step up.

“We’re just going to try to figure out the five or six or seven girls that can give us the best opportunity to win,” Morelock said.

What's up? My name is Aiden Quinlin and I’m a sports reporter this year. I’m a sophomore and this is my first year on The Journal. I’m on the football team currently, and I’m hoping to be on the baseball team this year as well. I play travel baseball, so my summer is pretty packed. Baseball is my true passion, however, and I could talk with anyone all day about it. As you could imagine, I love working out and lifting weights. I also love to travel and go on trips with friends and family. I’m in a family of four with my mom, dad and sister. One of my biggest problems right now is probably watching too much YouTube. Additionally, I love to play video games even though I’m pretty trash at any game I play. Anyway, this is my first year on The Journal, so go read my stuff!
