Fourth Quarter Run Allows Seneca Valley Girls to Beat Northwest, 53-49
The Seneca Valley Girls basketball team defeated Northwest Friday night by a score of 53-49 for the first time since December 2014, to advance to 3-1 this season.
After not winning a single game last season, the Lady Eagles have come out of the starting gate with three wins in their first four games this season. The loss drops the Lady Jags to 2-2.
The Lady Eagles are 3-1 this season. That is more victories than the program has achieved in the last two years. The Seneca Valley girls have posted a record of 1-44 over the last two season. This year will hopefully mark a turning point.
“There is a new aura about the girls this year,” said Seneca Valley Head Coach Jennifer Hoffman. “They are being really positive this year, and are gelling really well. It is a new season; they finally said we are done with losing and have taken on a real positive aura. Some of the girls did extra work in the off-season, and they came back and said, ‘We’ve got to work harder a practice.’”
She said the seniors and leaders on the team have stepped to create a positive winning culture. “They are on each other about being late and working hard. I don’t even have to say anything. They are holding themselves accountable to their teammates. Even their teachers tell me that they can see a difference in the girls
