All my life I wanna be a Ladybug
March 3, 2017
Saturday, Feb. 25, the Alva Ladybugs won their advancement to the area tournament in a nerve-wracking win against Chandler. As it sinks in that this will be the seniors', Whitney Randall, Cathy Mapes, Ally Riley, Jordan Shiever, Allison Seevers, Lexie Shafer and Mattie Duncan, last area tournament of their high school basketball career.
Going along with this season being filled with last times for the Ladybug seniors, we asked them what it means to them to be a Ladybug.
“Being a Ladybug for me has meant having a second family away from home and knowing I can always count on my team. It also means always giving 110 percent in everything we do.” – Cathy Mapes
“Being a Ladybug means to be a part of a team that is always there for you whenever you need something. It also means giving your all and never giving up on you or your teammates.” – Lexie Shafer
“Being a Ladybug means always having each others' back. We play together, win together, lose together and fight together. Being a Ladybug means being a team on and off the court.” – Whitney Randall
“Being a Ladybug is being a part of a family. It’s constantly pushing each other to be the best you can be on and off the court.” – Mattie Duncan
“Being a Ladybug means working as hard as you can to push yourself and your teammates to become not only better athletes, but better people and role models for the future Ladybugs.” – Ally Riley
“Being a Ladybug means being a role model to all the kids that look up to you. It’s having the best community and students behind your back at all times. It’s always giving your all for the better of your team. It’s being a family.” – Jordan Shiever
“Being a Ladybug means striving for excellence in everything you do. It requires hard work and dedication. It’s an honor to be a Ladybug.” – Allison Seevers
The Ladybug basketball team will be playing against Holland Hall at 6:30 p.m. in Cushing. Good luck Ladies!
