Coach Aisha Kennedy said she was proud of the girls and happy to see them achieve this common goal.
“It’s fun and exciting, and that’s your goal as a coach: to make sure that they have a great high school experience and then that you’re preparing them to go off and play Division 1 basketball if that’s their dream, and it was those four young ladies’ dream,” Kennedy said. “It’s very exciting to watch them grow and achieve their goals.”
The players said they all made their decisions separately and were ready to go in different directions from each other, although they will miss being teammates.
But before they run off to college, the players still have senior year to get through and a chance to win another state championship together.
“We know we’re going to do big things this year again this year,” Kushkituah said. “We’re going to go back to DICK’S Nationals in New York and we’re going to win another championship. So I’m really excited about finishing it out with my best friends.”
