Over the past four years the Phoenix basketball team made major improvements, and seniors Alaina Hofer and Megan Dennis have been a huge part of that. This season the team finished with five wins and 20 losses. Many games were very close with the Phoenix only losing by a couple points. The future for the team shows great promise, but the seniors presence will be missed.
Alaina Hofer: Passionate Captain
Hofer filled the role of captain on the team and brought both talent and passion. She finished her career barely missing the 1000 points club. Hofer is proud of her ability to set mean screens that sometimes resulted in players being left on the floor. As a post player, she took control under the basket.
Megan Dennis: Team Comedian
Dennis has always been the comedic relief during hard practices. She brought hustle and aggressiveness to the court. Her strong defensive skills were a huge asset that the team relied on.
Wilson Basketball Shares Memories
As a team, the Phoenix shared some great memories. For instance, they have taken the rocket-ship van all the way to New York and made fun of the fact that there are more stinkbugs on the court than players during practice. The team will definitely miss their two seniors next season. However, their legacy will continue on and contribute to the future success for the basketball program at Wilson.
