Game Changer: Erwin Girls Basketball
Updated: Thursday, December 12 2013, 01:13 PM EST
The Erwin girls basketball team is having an outstanding season.
Heather Burton says, "I'm very proud of my team. We have five people coming back from last year. We are all really close. We're doing really great."
The Warriors just finished a difficult stretch playing five games in the past seven days. Their overall record this season is 5-1.
Molly Kerr says, "We all mesh really well together. We all bring something different to the plate."
Head Coach, Terry Gossett has done a tremendous job getting his players to buy into his system by building a high level of team chemistry.
Terry Gossett says, "The kids are very unselfish. They look for each other. This is one of the quickest teams we've had in a while. We like to push it as much as we can."
Luke Notestine says, "Coach Gossett took his girls basketball team to Knoxville to watch the University of Tennessee Women's basketball team play a game. It was an eye-opening experience for the girls on the Erwin team who got to sit just five rows behind the Tennessee bench."
Molly Kerr says, "That was the second time we've gone to the school. The first year we went with the team, that was the first I had seen that level of basketball. It's really eye-opening."
Heather Burton says, "The post players always hustle down the floor and go for every rebound."
Terry Gossett says, "It was good for them to get close to the bench to see the size of the players and the speed of the game. They enjoyed the trip."
If the Erwin players continue to use what they learned on their trip to Knoxville, they will be tough to beat in every single game they play this season.
