After taking a 26-year hiatus, the Skyline College Women’s Basketball team came out dominating. With a 4-1 record, strong ethics, quickness, hustle and heart, the season for the Lady Trojans looks bright.

Brittany Lindhe is the young head coach for the Women’s basketball team. The ex-shooting guard for the USF Dons is confident in her “young women.” With six years under her belt and having coached in a Division One league, the stats prove that Lindhe knows what she’s doing.

Lindhe’s strategy is to allow the ladies to have fun. The team is excited to pave the way as the first ladies to surface in over two decades. They aren’t feeling any pressure this semester as they look forward to taking the season one day at a time and putting their “Best game forward,” according to Lindhe. The undersized players use their strengths to their advantage and work hard as a team to ensure success.

The Trojans won their first home game against Cabrillo College on Nov. 8. Although Esmeralda Lopez-Rivas, Salote Tafuna and Marie Colon are the leading scorers, Lindhe said there are no stars. Collectively, they will strengthen their transition defense and use their hustle to compensate for their size.

According to Lindhe, the women’s basketball team is equally opportunistic, as every player has a chance to shine.
