Holy Cross senior girls basketball coach Erin Gauthier knows exactly what she is going to get from forward Amanda Hemphill. "She's very enthusiastic and she plays absolutely tenacious defence for me but on offence, she is a little shy,' she said. "I am trying to get her to be more aggresive and that's exactly what she did today.'
The 5-foot-8 forward led her team with 15 points Wednesday, but it wasn't enough as the Raiders fell 46-31 to the visiting Saint Michael Mustangs in Niagara Catholic Athletic Association play.
"She rebounded hard, she made some moves with her back to the basket and she looked to pass and get the ball to her teammates if necessary." Gauthier said.
The Grade 12 student would be the first to admit she needs to be more aggressive on offence.
