Emma Morris, senior, is a point guard for the Ladycats.

Emma Morris is a senior at Struthers High School and plays basketball for the Struthers Wildcats. She plays as a point guard on the varsity team. She has been playing basketball since she was in 4th grade but was introduced to it a few years prior. 

The team has had amazing players for the past 2 years. They are unfortunately on a losing streak of 0-3, but they had a game on Monday, December 11, at home and will be playing against East. 

Morris is thrilled about the new season.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how our team develops; there are a lot of younger girls that have a lot of potential and I’m excited to see how we play together after we get in the rhythm of things,” says Morris. 

Morris has a lot of hope for the upcoming freshman and how they will strive to work together. The thoughts of all the upcoming games will be thrilling because there are many freshmen on the team.

Morris expresses how she feels about being a point guard.

“The part that is challenging is that you have the ball in your hands the most, which means you have to make smart passes and take care of it more, as well as have good court vision,” says Morris. 

While being faced with the position of a point guard is a very difficult task, they are the most important players of the whole game. They have to make almost every decision and have to predict what will happen after. Morris can face some challenges at spot, but can also make it out on top. 

Morris faces a hard decision. 

“I’m still deciding if basketball will be the right sport I will be playing in college. Basketball is one of my top options though, because I love the speed of the game as well as how creative it can be and overall how it builds character. Any sport also has the plus of having a community feel from the team, so I believe that it would help anyone transition into a new environment such as college,” says Morris.
