Jo Cougars playing basketball

2019-2020 Season Highlights

The Josephinum girls basketball season was a competitive one. The team became more unified as a team and it showed on the court. The Cougars displayed determination, hard work, and heart to show that we are capable of playing with any team. The Cougars lost several close games throughout the season, but ended on a high note. The Cougars logged several winning streaks which granted the team a spot in the IHSA Playoffs.

One specific highlight is half way through the season there was a turning point which increased the teams overall confidence. This occurred when the Cougars were playing a team that was only defeated one time throughout the season. At half time, the Cougars were only down by 5 points. At that moment in time the team looked at themselves and realized that they can perform and compete at a high level.

Last but not least we had one of our players join the IHSA 3 point showdown. She made it the furthest any player from Josephinum has made it before. It was an outstanding performance representing Josephinum and a great accomplishment!
