Southridge HS girls have Hoop Dreams repeat

So far, the Southridge Skyhawks are 10-0

AJ McCord - BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) -- The Southridge High School girls basketball team is undefeated after 10 games this season, earning the top ranking in 6-A hoops.

They're fresh off a state championship year, and even though the Skyhawks lost 6 seniors after the 2017 season, the team is playing, well, like a team.

"We've been playing with each other forever, it seems like," said Southridge sophomore Cameron Brink. "We have great chemistry and we all care about each other a lot, so I feel like we just play for each other and that's what's special about this year."

Senior Natalie Hoff said the team needed to make a new path for themselves "and not look at last year because anything could happen. And the state is, everyone in the state is just getting better so we have to get better alongside of them."

But some strengths from last year's squad remain the same.

"This year, I think again, just like we were last year, we're a bunch of really good close group of girls," senior Maggie Freeman said. "I think that we're all, like, really good and passionate friends and so, like, we get along well, all the time, like we don't chip at each other. It just make playing together really fun."

And this year's leaders say the blueprint from last year helps them know what it will take to win it all again.

"It kind of shows us, like, that we know what we need to do to be successful again," Freeman said. "We just have to be persistent and keep working hard."
