On Tuesday, Jan. 29, West Ranch varsity girls basketball seniors Jacqueline Paul and Carman Winters faced off against Hart high school in their last home game of their high school careers. Before the game, both seniors met up with their parents in the center of home court to take their last pictures with their coach while the commentator announced some of the many fond moments each player had in the past years playing for West Ranch.

“I’m going to miss coming to practice learning something new every practice and laughing and having fun with my teammates and laughing at my coach,” said Winters.

“My favorite memory was the Palm Springs tournament in the summer of 2018,” said Paul. “A detail for my favorite memory at Palm Springs is being out with my teammates late at night and messing around in the hotel.”

Both athletes fell in love with basketball at a very young age. This passion encouraged them to play the sport all throughout high school and hopefully continue their passion into college. As it is the last year that both of these seniors will play basketball for West Ranch, they had some advice for the incoming freshmen.

According to Winters, “My advice for younger members is just to make sure you have fun every game and play hard, aggressive, and never play scared because the other team can smell it, and they will think your weak. Just have fun and make the best of it.”

Paul adds, “My advice for younger players is to stay positive and work the hardest you can. You and your teammates are family and you have to support each other through everything.”

Good luck seniors! Come out and support the varsity girls basketball team in their last game of the season as they take on Golden Valley at Golden Valley tonight at 5 p.m.
