The Snow College Women’s Basketball team has had their struggles, but the future looks bright as they are a young team, improving every game.
When asked about her thoughts on the season thus far, Sophomore forward Mykel Davis said “We’re a really young team this year so it has been awesome to watch the team come together as the season goes on. We’ve had a rough start with conference this year but as the season continues we are only going to get stronger as a team”.
Over the Winter Break, the team travelled to play in the Southern Nevada Holiday Tournament, dropping three hard fought games, 66-74 against Central Arizona College, 87-54 against Hutchinson College, and 60-66 against Eastern Arizona College. The Badgers have since entered conference play, dropping two games against the 21st ranked College of Southern Idaho, and the 10th ranked Salt Lake Community College. However, after falling to 0-2 in conference play, they have won 3 conference games in a row.
When asked her feelings on the season, Freshman guard and leading scorer Harley Hansen said “It’s been an awesome experience so far, we’re a younger team and we have amazing coaches. We’ve played a lot of tough teams so far this season, and it’s helping us to learn and progress to get better as a team. I love playing basketball here at Snow!”
As mentioned, Harley Hansen leads the team in points per game, with 11.6 ppg, followed closely by Freshman Tayviah Ah’Quinn and Madison Mooring, with 9.5 and 7.9 ppg, respectively. Hansen also leads the team in rebounds with 5.8 per game, followed again by Ah’Quinn with 5.1 rebounds per game.
The young team is sitting at 8 wins and 8 losses on the season, with an 3-2 start to conference play. They will be looking to improve upon their record in games throughout the rest of January and conference play.
