Royals drop a close matchup against Quest
By Courtnie Martin, Sports Reporter
With new head basketball coach Courtney Gerwing at the helm, the women’s basketball team came out completely focussed and on fire against Quest University last Friday (January 10). Despite their strong start, the Royals headed into the half down 28-20, due in part to the Kermodes’ double-teaming the ball constantly, forcing Douglas into turnovers.
The third quarter was an uphill battle for the Royals. Simran Bir made some huge plays, as did Nanaya Miki, but the team struggled trying to catch up. The final score was 64-51 for Quest.
“I think we played really well. We came within four at one point. [We] just have to learn to capitalize on that. I still have really high hopes for us even though our record is not that great. We are a strong team with a ton of potential, we just have to work out all the kinks,” said player Garaline Tom.
