It’s round 2 of the Summer Rewind. As the season rolls on, UCSN takes a look back at the 2021-22 school year and sport seasons. In this series, we find our most viewed videos from each school this year, and reflect on the time of the school sports calendar from when the video was first posted.
Today, we rewind on the Livingston Academy Wildcats girls’ basketball team. Specifically, then-freshman Ellie Butler.
When this video was posted, the Lady Wildcats were 21-3 and 7-1 in district. The sole district loss at that point had come at the hands of the Cumberland County Lady Jets. The day this interview was posted, the Wildcats would defeat the Jets after two overtime periods with a score of 47-42.
FROM FEBRUARY 1st, 2022:
Friday night, the Lady Wildcats basketball team defeated district opponent DeKalb County Tigers 68-55. With a 6-1 district record, the Wildcats’ next matchup is Tuesday versus the Cumberland County Jets – who dealt Livingston their only district loss earlier this month.
Before the game, freshman stand-out for the Lady Wildcats – Ellie Butler – sat down with UCSN about her love for basketball, how she developed her game, her hopes for the season, and more.
