After Greg Welch received a new title of Freshman and Sophomore advisor, Physical Education teacher Jenny Page will be taking over as the head coach for the Rose Hill Girls Basketball team this season. 

Page says she is excited about coaching again and missed being around the sport. The returning seniors for the season, and likely starters, are Haley Thrush, Aspen Goetz, Korryn Hackney and Lexie Rose. 

“We have a great group of returning players. Our returning seniors offer experience and will be a great group of girls to help lead the team this season,” said Page. “They all are competitive players and want to win, so that is a joy to coach.”

Page says the season will be a challenge with Covid-19, but she is looking forward to the season anyways. 

“This season will have challenges with Covid-19. We started practice yesterday [November 16] with eight players in quarantine. This will obviously be something we have to work through and have to be ready for every single day,” said Page. “We could potentially have players missing on game days or we could have to postpone games because of COVID this season. While this is frustrating, we are just taking it day by day, and enjoying our time together every day.” 

Despite the adversity sports teams are facing, Page says she has confidence in her team. 

“This season will be a fun one. We have returning players that I think are improving and we can hopefully catch some teams off guard and surprise some people,” said Page.
