For the girls basketball team, this season has been about growing. Growing as a team and as a competitor in the Cowapa League.

“As the season has progressed so have we. We are finally starting to play like a team and it’s starting to pay off. Causing success, not in winning, but as a family,” says senior Krystal Esterly. Senior Kaylee Wegner is new to Scappoose this year, a transfer from St. Helens. “Playing with people you just met is hard because you don’t know what they expect of you and how you play with each other, but it got easier throughout the season. You just have to be adaptable to be successful,” she says. Adaptability will be something the team needs to hold onto next year when they play in a new league.  

While Scappoose is ranked 5th in the Cowapa League, they have lost a few very close games, which just makes them want to work harder. This resulted in their 36 to 24 win at Tillamook on Feb. 6, which secured them a play-in game against Seaside.

This past Monday, the Lady Indians traveled to the coast in search of a win to put them in position to play Astoria the following day for playoffs. The team had fallen to Seaside twice previously this season, and hoped to break that streak, but fell just short. While they fought hard, they eventually lost  to Seaside 40-44, ending their season.
