County girls ready to hit the court

County schools are gearing up for the winter sports season and the girls’ basketball teams are ready to take the court this week.

Avon

After finishing 6-15 in his first year as the Avon head coach, David Cupp returns with the same renewed energy and drive to put the Orioles basketball program back on track as he displayed last season. Cupp has set his expectations and taken stock of the situation.

“Our only goal is to be a better team and better individual players on our last day than we are on our first day,” he said. “We are so young and inexperienced, that to put goals that have to do with wins and losses would be unfair to the girls. I have never believed that successes and failures are measured by wins and losses, especially at the high school level.”

Three varsity players return with experience from last year for the Orioles.

Senior Megan Price is Avon’s deep threat on offense and a stalwart on defense, but is currently out with an injury to begin the season. Junior Rachel Griffin returns as Avon’s leading scorer, rebounder, assist and steals leader from last season. Sophomore Brooke Peters started to catch fire late last year and could be a breakout player for the Orioles.

“(They) will all be leaders for our basketball team because of their experience in playing at the varsity level,” Cupp said.

Griffin and Peters joined the team late because of the state championship volleyball run and bring that same winning attitude to the Orioles.

“I believe that success breeds success, and the experiences that the volleyball girls are having will carry over into our season,” Cupp said. “Coach (Scott) McQueen has high expectations for his players, and demands excellence from the girls every single day, so they will expect nothing other than that once they get to me.”
