With both boys and girls basketball being 1-0, they hosted their second home game of the season last Friday. After both Varsity teams found success last week playing against Niwot, Ali Davis had this to say, “We weren’t well last year, so I don’t think a lot of people were expecting us to win. I think this year we are going to surprise people because we play as a team instead of individually.” Both varsity teams won against the Northridge Grizzlies for an overall 2-0 record.

At 5:30, girls varsity stepped on the court in white to face the Grizzlies in red. After the first quarter, the Warriors lead by 2 and extended that lead in the second. At halftime, the score was 30-19 but the girls weren’t done putting the heat on Northridge. After the half, Frederick scored another 10 points and still held the lead heading into the final quarter. In the fourth, the Warriors scored 15 points making the final score 55-43. Freshman Megan Majeres led the team with 18 total points followed by Senior Lauren Leitner with 14 points.

After the game, senior Logan Zimmerman told us, “The game was so much fun, the whole team performed their best, and it was just awesome to be a part of and experience.”
