Throughout the entire season the girls basketball team worked hard every moment they could get. Having an incredible outcome at almost every game. The team consisted of seven seniors, and many talented juniors and sophomores. Their starting line up being Cece Legaspi (senior), Anna DaBell (senior), Averee Osterhout (senior), Logan Sailors (junior), and Addy Osterhout (sophomore). After playing remarkable games all season, the girls headed off to districts with confidence.

After speaking with Addy Osterhout, she explained how the team prepared for the championship game. “We are taking it day by day, making sure we execute on offense and play hard.” As mentioned before, Addy Osterhout is a sophomore playing on Varsity, which just goes to show her skills. She also added, “It’s definitely different playing as a sophomore on varsity than it was last year, plus there’s older girls who are faster and stronger.” But that factor never stopped Addy Osterhout from working hard to be a starting player. Addy Osterhout continued, “Getting to play with my sister Averee who is a senior and is playing her last year is just very special to me.”

Another player, Cece Legaspi, was interviewed after the district championship against Boise High School who is one of their biggest competitors. “Going into the district championship game, we knew Boise was good although we have beat them before, all we wanted to do was execute well, play at our best, and feeling at our best was the main goal.” Legaspi said.  Rocky did end up losing, but still got a chance in the State Championship. Legaspi stated further, “We were very happy with our performance, as well as just being there since we weren’t even supposed to. Next games we aim to execute offensively a little bit better.”

Behind the scenes of Rocky Girls basketball is a hard working team manager, Tenley Trubow. She is a freshman, so even though it is her first year at Rocky Mountain, she has been trying her best to support this team in every way possible. Trubow said, “The best part of managing this team was seeing all the girls improve, as well as seeing the younger players proving themselves in order to play.” Trubow also mentioned that the girls are very caring and understanding which is very reassuring as a freshman. The basketball girls support Turbow just as much as she supports them.

For the duration of the season, every one of the girls played their absolute hardest in order to get where they are today. They made sure working as a team was a bigger priority than winning, which is very important. The basketball girls bond was larger than any trophy they could have possibly won in any championship game. Despite the fact that they did not win state, they pushed through to make all their hard work, practice, and other games worth it in the end. Rocky girls basketball is an outstanding program and will only grow in the future both talent and bond wise.
