The freshman girls basketball team finished with a 9-2 record and made memories that’ll last forever. From the last game of the season where everyone scored to exchanging white elephant gifts, the Broncos had a successful and memorable season. Freshman Elon Lumumba’s first season as a Bronco had ups and downs but overall she had a successful season.

“I feel it went good, bad, and then back to being good,” Lumumba said. “It was good playing the sport and all but was bad was the way some people on the team acted and brought other people down,” 

High school definitely stepped up from middle school and Lumumba had to make adjustments to workouts and routines like ladders and conditioning.

“Legacy basketball is different from middle school because of the coaches and the type of workouts we do,” Lumumba said. “The difference in the workouts is that we get our running done during drills while in middle school we ran ladders every day.”

When everyone scored in the last game, Lumumba and her teammates made a great memory and celebrated.

My favorite memory would be the very last game everyone scored a point and we were happy when the last person to score got their point,” Lumumba said.”

Freshman Larissa Young had a successful season, made memories, and had to make adjustments as well that helped her become a better person and player. Young said the team record helped lift the program.

“I think the first season went great. Going 9-5 was huge for us,” Young said.

Young had to adjust to the stricter coaching but it helped her play better defense and get better offensively.

“It’s different by how we play, coaches are strict here at Legacy and it’s overall a great difference,” Young said.

Young’s favorite moment was exchanging gifts and she loved her team and bonding with them.

“My favorite memory from basketball is definitely white elephant,” Young said. “Because we had a team-bonding moment and we just had a lot of fun bonding and trading gifts,”
