Duluth Marshall girl’s basketball maintaining momentum through blizzard, holiday breaks
The Duluth Marshal girls basketball team is built for those tough moments. Without having any seniors on their roster they’ve gotten off to a 5-0 start. Despite weather cancellations of both games and practices, they are maintaining momentum.
“I have horses, so I have a lot of chores I have to do outside, and I stay active that way. I do a lot of ball handling to keep my handles. I have some weights and try to stay strengthened,” said sophomore guard Regan Juenemann.
The Hilltoppers won’t tip off their next game for a week, which means they will have had 18 days off between matches. They haven’t even hosted their home opener yet, as they have proven themselves tough as road warriors.
Head coach CJ Osuchukwu attributes that success to an unselfish team mentality. “We have a bunch of people that don’t really care about numbers, they care about wins, so that helps us out a lot. This is the deepest I think our team has ever been. We’ve got five girls right now that’s averaging double figures, and we have a bunch of people that understand how to play.”
The Hilltoppers will be back in action on December 29th in the St. Cloud’s Granite City classic.
