The 2023-2024 winter sports season is almost to a close, and the Amador girls basketball team has been putting in the work. Although their current record is 5-16, there have been many bright moments this season. 

“This season’s been different just because we have more players with similar skill. They’re just figuring out rotations, figuring out who’s playing well on their night. So in a lot of ways it’s a deeper team than we’ve had in the past,” said AV Girls Basketball Coach Dan Sweeney

This year, the girls basketball team showcases athletes of many ages, giving opportunities to underclassmen while giving the captains and underclassmen a chance to show leadership skills.

“I think this season has been a great opportunity for learning for us as returners and captains. It’s been a good opportunity to mentor the younger players as well. I think it’s been a lot of fun and there’s been ups and downs,” said Captain Kacie Hu

This season has been a great learning experience for the newcomers and returners on how to come back strong after a loss, something that is helpful in all aspects of life. They have faced many tough teams and now have another season under their belts.

Adversity is something that happens in life. One of the things we talk about in the program is that our goal as coaches and influencers on their lives is to try and teach them life skills and learn more about managing relationships, dealing with things that don’t go your way,” said Sweeney.
