“We’ve added more plays that showcase the best skills from each individual player as well as working to help the team find the best [open] shots,” said Julia Sheriptis, junior. 

In terms of the game being played against Hinsdale South, there is a rivalry between the Central and South teams. 

“We all feel the rivalry 100% and these are always fun games for us and we always wanna keep showing who the better team is,” Sheehan said. 

In terms of improvements for the upcoming games the Devils are focusing more closely on communication.

“I would say that our communication encore can be a little better,” said Katherine Skinner, senior. “Especially when we become quiet and almost become five individuals…communication and bringing each other up.” 

Even when times get harder the team is working on persevering throughout the games. 

“When things kind of don’t go our way in the game but we know we can get back into it,” Sheriptis said.
