“Long and hard season”

It was a long and tiring season in a very homogeneous championship in which you had to sell your skin dearly every weekend. Our group managed to remobilize after complicated preparations to keep the top 4, week after week. Despite the often irregular matches, sometimes very close, the team always showed a lot of character to get the energy needed to win.

She even finishes second best attack (+152) with 17 wins.

“We have always wanted to offer intense and advanced basketball, confirms the coach. Gradually, the girls adopted the game project and the expected state of mind. It is a tightrope walk, but it comes as a reward for all the investments of the group and the leaders. Now they will be able to enjoy a well-deserved summer vacation”.
