The PCM girls’ basketball team turned their season around after the turn of the new year; winning ten of the 11 games on the 2013 part of their schedule. Coach Bret Grier said that his girls really bought into the new defensive scheme he and his coaches came up with, which led to their success. Unfortunately, Grier will be losing five seniors to graduation this year, and he said that they were an extremely reliable group that he put a lot of trust into. Grier had five of his girls make the Heart of Iowa All-Conference team. Sophomore Courtney VanHouweling unanimously was voted on the first team, Abbi Gilson and Kelsey Townsend each were voted to the second team, and Krisha Houseman and Alexis Kain each received honorable mentions.
