Young Majettes Able to Shoot the Ball

Posted: Updated:

The Minot Majettes came so close to the state tournament last year but lost in the qualifying game to Jamestown. Not a lot of experience returns from that team. Two starters return for Coach Magnuson and there's only one senior on the roster.

What the Majettes lack for in experience they make up with energy and chemistry. Magnuson told me that this group of girls has been the easiest for him to work with in a long time. They feed well off each other and are excellent shooters. That Jamestown loss still eats at the Majettes and it's been good motivation ahead of this season.

"We put a lot of hard work and effort in. We want it really bad. Everyone works really hard every day. We're just moving on, moving forward and doing the best we can," forward Cassie Askvig says.

"That's the big thing for me. If we can focus on that team situation and get the girls to understand we're all one big family here that we need to work as family. That's been huge for me," Magnuson says.

"We're all really hard workers and we push each other every day in practice and that really helps for us. When we're playing, we click together and it makes it really easy to run up and down the court. It's fun to play with them," senior Jayden Moum says.

Minot opens its season this Saturday against Fargo North with tip off at 3.
