Victoria Arowosegbe(clemens) and Deja Dudley(judson)fight each other for the basketball. Colliding and jumping for the ball at the beginning of the game.
While along the free-throw line Kaytlin Carter (#3) and Atiana Cook (#22) talk and laugh with each other. One of them made a mistake and they had to do a free throw line, and while waiting these two were showing that even though you are on opposite teams, you can show friendliness.
Kendall Wright(#2) with the group huddled together making a plan to beat Judson, Kendall looked at the camera and started making faces. It was nice to see the team members playing around and being silly.
Sarah Boone is running with 8 seconds on the timer, trying to get a score before the time runs out. She moves fast and is very agile and happened to make an assist, scoring more points for our team.

Kaylee Ha (#3) stressed by the score and huddling with the team, making a strategy to beat Judson. Showing her emotion of distress because before this the team missed the basket.
Here is our team cheering at the win. It was a back and forth game, both teams fighting and coming together. They tried very hard, and worked hard, and it paid off.
