Earlier this year Lady Miners head basketball Coach Joshua Harrison gave each girl on his basketball team one piece of a puzzle. As his team looked at him with confusion, Harrison explained how it would all make sense in the end.
â€śWe all are individuals, we all have unique and different skills, but when we come together and we lock those pieces together, we can make up a very strong team,â€ť Harrison said.
With a new basketball season on the horizon, Harrison is hoping this visual motivates his team.
Rarely does a team graduate four starting seniors from a single team in a single season of high school basketball. Even rarer, is when those four seniors have played on the same team together since the fifth grade. This was the headline of the 2011 Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals. New Harmony Grove Head Coach John White was welcomed by a strong and talented team in his first year over the Lady Cardinals in 2011.
The Harmony Grove Cardinals finished off the regular season in style when they pulled out their third shutout of the season on the road at Horatio with a 27-0 domination of the Lions on Thursday night in 5-3A conference action.
"We played well on both sides of the ball and the kicking game," Assistant Coach Richard Moore said. "Good effort."
Harmony Grove also shut out Poyen 17-0 in Week 1 and Bismarck 27-0 in Week 5.
