by Rayanne Kowle, Imprint Media Services
Freshman Addi Shafer is a basketball player for the Mooresville JV girls basketball team. She plays both guard and forward. She also dresses Varsity at games.
Her personal goal for the season is to get mentally better and not worry about what others think of her ability. Shafer said, “My team goal is to work together as a whole and not just individually.”
Shafer has adjusted to the jump from middle school to high school by putting in more time at and outside of practice. Shafer said, “The practice style is different than middle school.” She also described the coaching and new teammates as a change.
Shafer’s best game was against Owen Valley when she had 16 points. The team worked together in unison. The end result was a win for the team. She has improved her abilities since middle school into high school. She played guard and then was moved to forward, and then post position.
