This season, the girl’s basketball team has gotten off to a rocky start, but like all sports seasons, it’s all about how the team comes together and finishes the season that matters. A big part of the Lady Pounders basketball team is sophomore Haiden Harness.

Despite the team’s record, Harness is proud of the team’s effort and the way the team has played thus far.

The Digest sat down with Haiden to get a glimpse into her life on and off the court. Central High School athletes dedicate an immense amount of time and energy to their respective sports, so it is only right for the community to get a look inside what makes Central athletics so special.

What’s your favorite high school sports memory? My favorite high school memory was last year in February when we played Howard because we got back at them.
