Bulldog of the Week

Grangeville’s basketball team is very young, with the varsity squad featuring three sophomores and a freshman in outsize roles.

Among the team’s younger players, sophomore Paige Lindsley is off to a fast start, with double-digit scoring each of the first two nights.

“A lot of us haven’t played together, so we’re figuring out what each other will do, and we’re working together better as a team,” Lindsley said. “We didn’t play Lapwai last year. They’re a lot more physical as a team, but I think it was good for us to play them. They’re a tough team and it’s good for us to see that. I think there’s the idea of Lapwai and that was a big thing for us we had to get over.”

In practice, the Bulldogs have been focusing on preparing their offensive plans.

“We’ve been learning a lot of new plays and out-of-bounds plays and some new defensive stuff — and we’ve been doing a lot of running,” she said. “Volleyball is a lot of muscle strength. You’re jumping every play, whereas basketball shape has sprinting, jumping and a lot of different things — and there’s definitely more endurance.”

Lindsley played essentially all of the Lapwai game, but the Bulldogs were able to go through a full rotation of players at McCall.

“Since we were able to get an offense established, we were able to sub in more people, so we had a lot more play and a lot more score,” Lindsley said. “We had three in double-digits and that was awesome.”

Lindsley also pointed out senior McKenzie Kennedy’s passing and shooting: “She’s great,” Lindsley said.
