The Meridian Hawks basketball team played St. Teresa for the second time this season. The first time these teams met, St. Teresa went home with the win. The Hawks were hoping for a different result this game, but the game did not go as planned. The final score of the game was 76-46 St. Teresa with the win.
Layne Kircher was not pleased with the result of the game. “We didn’t play good defense, and the bottom line is they beat us in transition and we didn’t come out ready to play, and you can’t win games when you don’t come ready.”
Although the game didn’t go very well, the Meridian student section showed great school spirit. They stayed the whole game and cheered on the team no matter what happened.
The head of the student section, Justin Hendrian, does a great job getting students to show up and support the Hawks. “People from the community and students come to show support for the team and even though we lost, there was great school spirit at the game.”
Nate Durbin, a guard for the Hawks, says, “I think we just didn’t come out strong and our defense did not do very good.”
Even though the Hawks did not come away with the win, the community and students came and showed great support and awesome school spirit.
