I am a great believer in what is possible. And after watching this team play NCCC in a scrimmage a few days ago, I really liked what I saw. This team has size, speed and for the first time, I saw good shooting. And after a month of practice they're getting to know each other on the court. With 5 freshman and 6 sophomores, this is a young team with talent. And with upperclassmen Natalie Whitman (Jr.) and Amber Grosch (Sr.) as team Captains, they are led by two very capable women who have played and persevered in the face of adversity. Combine this team's talent and strong leadership and you've got kindling for a nice fire. Add the solid coaching Peterson and his staff offer and you've got a roaring blaze.
But even that's not enough... you must continue to add fuel to the fire, after all, 24 games plus playoffs is a long season. So what is the heart of this team? What will make this team the surprise of the conference this season? They have all the skills, athleticism, teamwork, leadership, coaching and support they need... so it's up to them. Because in my book, if they light the fire, this Hilbert team will go as far as they'd like to go.
The title for this post is 'No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.' The 2012-2013 Hilbert Women's Basketball team has all the right instruments, a strong conductor, and a talented group of musicians. I encourage the entire Hilbert community to watch their season opening performance this Thursday night (November 15, 2012) against Wells College at the Hafner Recreation Center at 6pm.
Hey, why not show up in force?
