“I couldn’t do anything without the rest of my teammates,” Hamilton said. “I really wanted to work hard and do my best for them because I know any player can really make a huge difference. It’s not just about me — it’s about the entire team. If I’m not pushing myself, giving 110 percent, that’s going to show through the other girls.”
In addition to preparing for a chance at the state championship, VBA is also looking ahead to the 2013-2014 season.
“We’re already planning for next season. I’m trying to work the girls in to the positions they’ll be in next year,” Catuto said.
Although the team will lose three players to graduation, Catuto noted that the VBA junior high girls were state runner ups, and the future of the program looks exciting.
