During halftime of the junior varsity girls basketball game last Monday night, Navarre’s varsity team took the floor for a shooting drill.
“We wanted to get a couple of extra shots in,” head coach Abby Fogg said. “The warmups before our game go so quick, so we saw it as a good time to get some more work in on our shooting.”

Navarre crushed Pensacola Catholic 71-54, the most points put up by the Raiders in their short time under the direction of Fogg, who is in her second season as the head coach.
The defense could have been better, but in the end, a win is a win. It kept the Raiders unbeaten through their first three games of the season.
“We definitely played well,” Fogg said. “We gave up more points than we wanted to, but we have improved a lot as a team. This was a good team win.”
