Varsity Basketball


OVERVIEW

The Holton-Arms varsity basketball team had a wonderful 2018-2019 season. The team finished the regular season in third place in the ISL and took home 14 wins throughout the year. The team welcomed three new faces to the program: Mackenzie Kim ‘19, Maia Ferreyra ‘22, and Alena Makheja ‘22. These three student-athletes were led by captains Tori Edmunds ’19, Maddie McCormick ’19, and Kyley Rymsza ‘20. From day one, the returners set the tone regarding work ethic, intensity, and expectations, which made it easy for the rest of the team to follow. With a few new faces, the girls understood that coming together as a team, both on and off the court, was going to be important for their success. From the start, each player accepted, understood, and flourished at what their role was going to be. The coaching staff couldn’t be more proud of these student-athletes for always putting the team first.

As the season progressed, there was outstanding improvements on an individual and team basis. The players knew what skills they needed to focus on in order to make a difference, in addition to the team coming together in order to accomplish team specific goals. We had players throughout the season step up in big moments and were ready when their number was called. Point guard Carly Goldblatt ’20 stepped into a starting role halfway through the season and embraced this challenge with grit and hard work. On the offensive side of the ball, the team played together as one unit. When the ball was moving from side to side, hitting the different spots on the floor, and we had the balance of both the inside and outside shot, it was beautiful to watch. Without a doubt, the highlight of the season was our win over Maret. It is always a great feeling knowing that you gave the number one team in the league their only league loss.

Congratulations to Maddie McCormick ’19 and Kyley Rymsza ‘20 who were selected as ISL A Division all-league players. Holton was only one of two teams to have multiple student-athletes selected, which is an incredible accomplishment!

A special thank you to all of our parents and fans for all their support throughout the season! Go Panthers!
