Jaguar Girls Build Confidence on the Court

West Jordan - The West Jordan High School girls basketball team is on the verge of attaining the goals they have set for the season.

“We have played well enough defensively to win many of these games. Our struggle is our confidence on offense. We really need to keep working on building confidence in our shot. We certainly do not quit or stop. We have had the leads, it comes down to believing we will and can score,” girls head coach Carlson Boudreaux said.

The Jaguars have a team goal to hold their opponents to 10 points or fewer a quarter. They have done that in eight of their first 11 games this season.  Despite allowing Copper Hills to score 71 points they have averaged holding their opponents to 40.7 points per game.

“I am proud of these kids. We could hang our heads and pout; these girls do not quit. They keep playing hard,” Boudreaux said.

Senior Siki Suguturaga leads the team in scoring averaging 10.8 points per game. She was one of 15 Utah prospects announced as nominees to participate in the 2016 McDonalds All-American game March 30 at the United Center in Chicago. McDonalds will finalize the roster later this season. She was one of 760 athletes nominated across the country.

“That [being nominated] is pretty cool. I was not expecting it, but I feel really honored. It is crazy to think that I could play on TV,” Suguturaga said.

Boudreaux hopes Suguturaga does not feel any pressure to play better than she is capable because of the honors.

“I am worried about her this season [Suguturaga]. She is a captain and one of the leaders of our team. She is a great kid and always ready to shoot. All of the teams in our region know about her. They are not double teaming her, but they are taking away her lanes. They know what to expect. She needs to play well for us to do well, and that is a lot of pressure,” Boudreaux said.

The Jaguars will also rely on contributions of other players to compete in Region 3. Breann Bennett has stepped forward as the team’s point guard. Boudreaux said she is the fastest player in their region. The team’s top rebounder is 6’2’’ senior Sierra Coombs.

“I would take these kids with me anywhere.  This is a great group of kids, they are resilient,” Boudreaux said.
