Girls Basketball

Payge ronfelt

The girls’ basketball team is in a different situation this year; they only have one senior on the team. Payge Ronfeldt, a four year letterer and a two year starter, is the lone senior and plays a huge impact for the team. She enjoys being a leader of the girls’ team this year. One of her favorite memories was beating an undefeated Kingsley Pierson at their home court during her junior season. She said, “It was an amazing feeling to know that all odds were against us, and we were able to show everyone what we were capable of.” Payge believes the season is going great, sitting at 9-3 on the year and facing some tough competition. “I think if we continue to work hard we will have a great opportunity to compete for the conference championship,” Payge believes. According to coach Matthew Jenness, “Payge does a little of everything, and can be seen by looking at her stats. Payge averages 8 points, 3.2 rebounds, and nearly 4 steals a game.  She does exactly what I need her to do and she gives our team a competitive edge.” When asked how the season has gone thus far, Coach Jenness replies, “We do a good job for stretches at a time, but we need make every possession count. We need to focus on playing with urgency, and never letting up on defense.” The goal set by coach Jenness is for every player to compete “more like Payge”.
