LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) – For the first time in program history the Logansport Berries are preparing for semi-state. A game they have waited a long time to play.
“I think headed into this year a lot of people didn’t think that was possible with the team, like the players we lost from last year. So, just to be able to do that and prove people wrong. It feels really good,” said senior guard Whitney Jennings.
“It’s been a big impact on Logansport all together. Every where we go we get compliments and it’s just awesome to have the first regional in Logansport basketball history,” said junior forward Sydney Bullard.
Up next is a game against Penn, a team with semi-state experience and a 15-game winning streak.
“We heard they are really good, so we just have to step up and do the best that we can. We know we can do it,” said junior forward Nakeya Penny.
“We all are just gonna have to play our game. I mean if everyone’s shoots fall, we all play good and everyone contributes, I think it’ll be a good game. Anything can happen in the tournament,” said freshman guard Maddie Dalton.
Playing their style of basketball is always fun to watch, a group of Berries who enjoy spending time together.
“I don’t think we ever had a practice where we were all quit, or shy or anything. It’s just we’re always up beat about everything and just want to get things done,” said Dalton.
“I don”t even know. We are all different in age. It’s kind of weird we are so close, but like we always have so much fun together. We have crazy times in the locker room,” said Bullard.
“We do crazy stuff. We just make up things we say or do. I don’t know it’s just been a memorable season with all the girls and I don’t want to see it end,” said Jennings.
The Berries will practice once more this week in Crown Point on Friday before Saturday’s game at approximately 3 p.m.
