The Rye High School Girls’ Basketball Team has rolled to a 4-0 start and second year Head Coach Kermit Spencer couldn’t be enjoying his 14 young charges more.

“Playing 3A last year was tough,” he shared. “We won two games and both of those were tough, ugly wins. Three of the top four teams in the state came from our league and my girls got stomped hard. But, overall, I think it was good. We know how to compete under tough circumstances. The girls had a choice, they could get beat up or step up. We stepped up.”

Under the leadership of his four seniors the Lady Thunderbolts matured over the summer. The team participated in three summer camps, a fall league for non-volleyball players and a variety of other mostly self-motivated work to make them better.

“The leadership from the seniors that developed over the summer was fun to watch,” mused Spencer. “Each one knows what they are supposed to do and each one has the confidence the other members of the team will take care of their responsibility. They depend on each other from top to bottom. It is fun. They get along and there is a family feel to the team.”
