Lanier’s Girls’ Basketball Team are in prefect harmony with each other, even though each girl is different. The members of the Lady Viks Basketball team want this year to showcase their teamwork, skills, but most importantly their unbreakable bond on and off the court. Hence their motto “All in”.
I interviewed the Basketball’s Varsity Team’s scoring threat fast player, Precious Brewer and rising point guard Kadasia Duirden for more intel on the team. “Playoffs no exceptions,” is the response I got after asking Brewer about the team’s goals this year. “We are family and we argue, but what family doesn’t”, added Duirden. “At the end of the day we all want one thing, so we gotta work together to do so.”
This determination showed during the teams’s first home game with Eastside Memorial. There, even in chaotic situations, the Lady Viks, kept calm and cautious. Duirden helped guide the team to a win. Meanwhile, co-captains Erica Coleman and Brewer continued to show us excellence during the game. Coleman finished with 23 points and 15 rebounds. Brewer posted 14 points and seven rebounds, which helped end the game with a score of 50-33, a victory for the Lady Viks.
