Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 5 p.m. to 7p.m., a group of normally around 10 girls can be found in the Goolrick gym lacing up their shoes and running back and forth down the court. This group of girls make up the UMW women’s club basketball team.
The UMW women’s club basketball team will be playing two tournaments this semester, both of which are away. The first one will be at George Washington University March 26 through March 27.
The second tournament will be held at James Madison University from April 9 through April 10. The team will be facing many opponents that will cause many obstacles for the team.
The team will need to come together and work like a well-oiled machine in order to overcome the multiple obstacles in their way.
Club president and senior Gabby Clark believes that the first tournaments will help give the team some exposure and experience. They will have to learn from the first tournament in order to come out and dominate the second tournament at James Madison University. “We have a tight knit group of girls this year from a wide range of basketball experience,” Clark said.
The team is hoping to come together so that they can perform well together and win most of the games at the tournaments that they will attend. The biggest strength of the team said by Clark is “the toughness and the togetherness.”
With this, the women’s team should be able to go out there and put up some good performances in both of their tournaments.
