With 16 girls making up the entire Hillsboro High School girls’ basketball team, there is room for plenty of court time each player.

“There are lots of opportunities to see or earn playing time,” said Nathan Hiebert, HHS head coach. With only three returning letter winners, lots of space is left open on the varsity team, said Hiebert, but he is trying to mix people around.

Hiebert said he is focusing on chemistry, precision and attitude.

“We need to change our attitude to want to win,” said Hiebert. “We were very close last year.” In order for this to happen, everyone needs to be focused on the little things, he said.

Along with an attitude adjustment, Hiebert said he would like to incorporate “more pressing defense. We have to be able to press full court to get more easy buckets.” He said with more pressure comes more toughness.

Two key seniors are returning to set the foundation for this season, as the Trojans hope to improve on last year’s 5-16 record.

Abby Sechrist averaged 4.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Sienna Kaufman tallied 5.9 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.

The girls go into winter break 3-1.
