Girls Basketball Expected to End at Top of Division

Posted on January 18, 2019 by


The Fleetwood girls basketball team is ready for the upcoming season. The team planned to use tenacious defense and a determined mindset to end at the top of the division. Jason Guarente of the Reading Eagle spelled out the Tigers’ defensive game plan and calls junior Michaela Kaskey a player to watch out for this season. Coach Kellett also thought Kaskey could contribute.

“I would say Michaela Kaskey would be our leading scorer when the season ends,” Coach Kellett said.

The girls have Rebekah Earnest and Kayla Schlegel, both seniors, next in line to lead the scoring. Junior Michaela Kaskey remains humble, attributing scoring to great team chemistry.

“We have great chemistry on and off the court. Everyone can depend on each other for anything, which sets us apart from a lot of other teams,” Kaskey said.

Kellett added that the team is at its best when everybody on the floor is sharing the ball and taking the correct shots. A team-oriented, selfless attitude will be the girls’ key to success on offense.

More so than the offensive part of the game, the team is focusing on their defense.

“We have spent a lot of time focusing on our defense,” Coach Kellett said.

The team has a mindset of scoring just one more point than the other team. The girls’ team has been strong defensively for a few years. They have held opposing teams to under forty points a game in each of the last two seasons. The team will look to continue this type of defense to end up where they expect to.

The team has expectations to end the season at the top of the division.

“This season, our division appears to be on much more of an even competitive level,” Coach Kellett said, adding that they have a good chance to end up being the winners of the division.

Berks Catholic lost a few key pieces but is still a contender, and Twin Valley has a lot of talented individuals, making them a key player in the division. Fleetwood looks to use their preparation, defense, and unselfish offense to compete for a division title this season.
