Thurs. Jan. 31 marks the last game of the regular season for the Lady Indians (5-18) as they face the Troy Warriors (21-6) away at 6 p.m.

Senior Gracelynn Basas’ favorite memory from this season has been the constant support of her parents cheering her on in the stands.

“Nothing beats the endless support I receive whether it be a win or a loss,” Basas said.

Basas’ goal for season was to enjoy playing her final year of high school basketball.

“I’ve gained a lot of personal growth throughout this season and it’s something I’ll carry throughout my life,” Basas said. “Seeing how we’ve all grown as a team and as friends from freshman year to now labels a sentimental value nothing else can top.”

This season has taught senior Destiny Cobb a lot about perseverance.

“It’s easy to continue doing something when you’re the best at it and our team honestly wasn’t the best in our league, but we never gave up on ourselves,” Cobb said. “In real life people don’t always reach success the exact ways they expect it and learning how to accept that reality gracefully is a skill that I’m grateful to have now.”

Cobb is excited and looks forward to the team’s final game.

“It’s against our rival school, and they’re the best team in our league so I’m ready to leave everything on the court,” Cobb said. “Basketball has had a huge impact on my life for the past four years and saying goodbye is going to be a lot harder than I anticipated.”
