A season of victories

During the evening, South’s Varsity basketball team slammed their way into a victory. On Tuesday, December 19th, the team earned a considerable win against Chippewa Valley. With the result of the score being, 63-50, the team’s record is now improved to 5-1.

Starting player, Karter Richards, 24’ led the way to the win by scoring 23 points. With his overall performance throughout the game, he didn’t once let a mistake get to his head and continued to push through the game.

“I definitely could have played better,” Richards said. “There were a few free throws I missed, but I didn’t let that stop me and continued to play my best.”

According to Richards, there are many mentalities to help the team when wanting to play well as a whole and get the win, and talking, and showing those factors helps make him reset if there were any errors made.

“Communication that’s the biggest aspect to playing better,” Richards said. “We use everyone’s communication, which leads to everyone doing their best on the court.”

From the sidelines, hearing the team work together to make shots, makes Tommy Fannon stand on his feet. As Tommy Fannon watches his older brother, Greg Fannon 24’ make impressive layups, these types of plays make him a very proud brother.

“Having my older brother be a part of the basketball team feels like an honor to me,” Tommy Fannon said. “By supporting him doing his best on the court, it makes me excited to play when I get older.”

As the crowd’s energy got loud from the start, according to Tommy Fannon, he knew from the moment he walked in that South was going to win.

“Before the game had started, I knew we were going to win,” Tommy Fannon said. “Even when we are down, we only shoot 3’s and end up with the win.”

After winning over 10 points from the other team, Richards stated that the team’s performance was very good, and he was happy with the outcome.

“I think the team played well, even when there were times in the game where we turned it over a bit,” Richards said. “But we came out hot, and won the game.”
