   “It’s always sad to see the season end. It definitely wasn’t our best game. We all wish we would have done better,” sophomore Jordan Fritz said.
   The varsity girls basketball team finished its season last week after a loss to Olathe East in the sub-state championship.
   The Lady Mustangs finished the season with an 8-12 record. Although the ladies finished below a 500 record, they are proud of an array of accomplishments.
   “We also had a lot to be proud of during our season. We all got better and we almost beat aquinas in overtime,” Fritz said.
   The Mustangs are losing one player next year, senior Madison Merritt. She will attend the University of Central Missouri in the fall of 2015.
   “Madison was really an amazing leader  and role model for the rest of the team,” junior Kimberly Apuzzo said.
   The Mustangs hope to reach the 6A state championship in 2016.
   We lost a lot of close games last year at the buzzer. Next year I hope we can finish those close games next year with a win,” Fritz said. “My long term goals are to work hard on the off season and get to state next year.”
   Merritt believes that the Lady Mustangs are on the right track for next season.
   “My words of wisdom would be to never give up the fight,” Merritt said.
