High School Hoops Blog
End of an Era
By Katie Peterson
After four and a half months, I am done with my last high school basketball season. It was nice to
be able to just go home after school, and have more free time, but at the same time, I donŐt really
know what to do with myself. I opened up a membership at a gym in town, but not playing basketball
everyday has been very weird. Our team was playing for the semifinals when we lost by one point,
which was upsetting at first.
Once the season was over, I played in an All-Star Senior Game with
one of my friends. Although our team lost, it was really fun to play with a bunch of girls from
all over the league that I was used to playing against. Then, a few weeks after that, I played in
a tournament called the Stars and Stripes Showcase, where the league is broken up into four teams,
and we played against each other according to our town residence. It was really fun to practice
and then play with the girls on my team, many of whom I knew from having played against them during
the regular season.
Our team ended up winning the tournament, which was really cool (so
technically, my team won its very last high school game). Our last high school banquet was last
night. It was really good to see everyone together for the last time. We ate good food, gave out
awards, and watched an awesome slideshow with pictures from throughout the season. I have enjoyed
playing with the team for the last four years, and wish them the best of luck!
Next year, I plan on
going to SUNY Geneseo, where I will study elementary education and history, while playing on the
basketball team. I chose Geneseo because it was the one school that I looked at where I could
really see myself as a student and an athlete, not just one or the other (or neither). I really
enjoyed my official visit with them -- the team was really nice and played really well. This season,
Geneseo got to the second round of the NCAA tournament, while being the host for the first two
Thanks to everyone who helped me write this blog, and anyone who read it. I hope that I

of luck with your sports careers!
