Girls prep basketball teams prepare for season ahead at annual area media day

Area girls high school basketball teams opened their season Tuesday with the annual media day at Northrop High School. The afternoon gives players and coaches a chance to look ahead with local media.

“We are going to take our hits, but we are going to get there,” said Greg Friend, head coach of a Snider team that graduated 47 points per game last spring. “I think we are adapting to what I am teaching and the kind of culture of what we have to do”

Practice will officially kick off on Monday with games starting November 2-4 for most area teams.
