I noticed that the Pulaski Academy Girls Basketball team worked hard enough to become the #1 seed for the up and coming State Tournament! I wanted to interview Alex Otwell about their recent success, how did they overcome all of the adversity and how much handwork did it take to get to the position they are in! Alex said, "Oh we're very determined this year. At the beginning of the season, we weren't really sure how the season would end up for us. But as we kept getting better in the gym everyday and got a few games in, we realized that we could really make a statement if we put our hearts in it. And it's been easy to put in so much time because of how much we love each other. I've never had a team that I've felt closer to than my team this year. We're like a family and I think that plays a big part in how successful teams end up. The only adversity we've really come across is just losing games that we shouldn't have. But that happens to every team, if it were possible to have a perfect season then basketball wouldn't be as fun of a game as it is. WE just bounced back and fixed what we needed to!" I thought this was amazing and true! I agree totally with Alex! Congratulations to the Pulaski Academy Girls Basketball Team and good luck during the State Tournament! This is an amazing accomplishment! Y'all should be proud and continue building each other up.
