Basketball season has just started at Osceola and the girls’ junior varsity team has been at work both on the court and in the halls. Recently, the players on the team sold candy to students for $1 to raise money for the team.  They sold items such as sour worms, gummy bears, and watermelon gummies, as well as other various candies. The team decided to use gummy bears and worms instead of chocolate because some people don’t always like chocolate.

They expected to raise at least $400, and actually surpassed their goal and raised a little over $500. The money will be used for equipment, travel, and uniforms. Taylor Mont, 9th grade, said “I think it’s good that their selling for uniforms and stuff. It definitely seems like they need them.”

The girls are off to a rough start winning only one out of the five games they had so far. However team co-captain, Sydney Willis, 10th grade, has faith they’ll be able to pull through with a great season. “We are doing okay right now, we’re still trying to figure things out, we have a lot of potential,” she said. “We are improving a lot and I think we’ll get even better. Once the season really starts we’ll for sure do better. We put in 110%.”

The team practices every day from 1:40 to 4:30, and have between two to three games a week. Their next game is a home game tomorrow at 6:30pm against Largo. Warriors will line up outside the gym doors to support their girls’ team. Jared Ramos, 10th grade, said “I think the team is a very good one; I think they’ll for sure get better throughout the season.”
