Brookville Girls Still Undefeated
February 07, 2008 - From WSET-TV

They've got two Division One signees but one goal in mind. The Brookville girls’ basketball team is still undefeated at 21-and-0. It's a simple motto that's gotten 'em to where they are.

"1-2-3 Together!"

They've been saying it since the preseason and for the past three months it's worked perfectly, literally. No one's beaten the Bees and they don't plan on changing anything.

Joyous Tharrington, Brookville Sr. - "Our coach always says you need to be a good teammate off and on the court. That means talking to each other off the court, texting each other, just being good teammates. Together is what Brookville's all about."

Warner Dyke, Brookville Coach - "We're family. Matter of fact, I see most of them more than I see my own wife and kids and we are together. It kind of symbolizes what we're about. We have 11 players and four coaches and we're one."

Anna Pettyjohn, Brookville Sr. - "Everybody cheers for each other when the starters are out they're cheering on the bench. The bench is always cheering for the starters. It's just great that we all get along so well and we all care about how we perform."

Emilee Dunton, Brookville Sophomore - "I've never been on a team that we've been able to stay so successful and come out focused every night and be able to defend and make our shots when it comes down to crunch time."

Last season Brookville came up short in crunch time. They lost to Virginia High in the state quarter finals and ever since then they've used the bad taste in their mouth to refuel for an even better finish this time around.

Brittany Campbell, Brookville Sr. - "I think for the next two and a half weeks we're just really going to have to get after each other in practice to prepare us when we get to the high-caliber teams when we start seeing Spotswoods and Turner Ashbys."

Those are the types of teams standing in their way but one thing's for sure, to get that state championship, they'll have to do it.They've got two Division One signees but one goal in mind.
