The Cypress High School Girl’s Basketball team is having a slow start this year, with a 4-4 win-loss ratio to date. 

The Cypress Varsity Girl’s Basketball team had their first win of the season against St. Margaret’s High School with a score of 51-36. Varsity girls basketball team won their second game against Rancho Buena Vista with a score of 46-34. This was the season’s third game, proving that our girls started strong. On Wednesday, Nov 29, 2023, they won their game against Woodbridge High School by a score of 47-38, and their most recent win was against Rowland High School with a score of 55-49. 

The varsity has two tournaments left to compete in, the Segerstrom tournament which starts December 12th-16th and the Marina tournament which will be played right after Christmas day. The JV and Frosh/Soph teams have one tournament left and that is the Edison tournament right after Christmas.

   Every year is a new start for all the girls and they expressed their concern that it takes time to build chemistry with the new members of the team. Team manager Amanda Haro said, “As evident from the last tournament, our chemistry has developed a lot.” A Haro’s role involves assisting the coaches, “I enjoy it because I know the game and I get to help out the coaches, it makes me happy to see how our girls progress each day.” According to team member Miral Haj, the girls practice every day for 1 hour and 30 minutes and sometimes 2 hours.”

      The team’s journey has been rough but has shown great improvement. They have illustrated splendid sportsmanship on and off the court and have done amazing teamwork.
