Spartan JV girls hoops team stays undefeated

BAINBRIDGE - The Bainbridge High junior varsity girls basketball team is undefeated so far this season after three wins against Bremerton, North Kitsap and Kingston.

“We are working hard to improve our ability to be patient on the floor but also push tempo and get easy baskets,” said JV Coach Ian Havill.  “Most of our scoring opportunities so far have come from our ability to pressure our opponents with our defensive schemes.”

The team consists of nine sophomores and six freshmen players.

“Sophomore Carly Lant is leading the team in scoring at 12 points per game,” Havill said.

“Freshman players Kiera Havill and Sophie Taylor are playing solid basketball at both ends of the floor and have tremendous upside. Captains Kamie Coryell and Paulina Bredy have provided great leadership during practices and games and have kept the team focused and are also the top two rebounders.”

The Spartans played Chief Sealth on the road on Friday, Dec. 13.

“I believe it will be an outstanding season win or lose because I have such a great group of kids that come ready to learn and work hard, and have fun everyday,” Havill said.
