Chinook Girls’ Basketball Has High Expectations for 2023-24

The Chinook girls’ basketball team finished the 2022-23 season with a (25-3) record, including an undefeated regular season. The Sugarbeeters will have a new schedule to play on for the 2023-24 season as both Chinook boys’ and girls’ basketball has moved up from Class 9C to Class 1B.

Lady Sugarbeeters coach Mike Seymour told New Media Broadcasters that the team has high expectations, but it is important to realize the strength of the schedule moving up classes.

“I think anytime you have success like that, it’s very difficult to replicate,” Seymour said. “We definitely have an opportunity to go into every game with a game plan to win them all.”

“We can’t look past any opponent,” Seymour continued. “That’s one thing about moving up into Class ‘B’, all opponents are going to be very respectable.”

The Sugarbeeters are returning a core nucleus, led by senior star Hallie Neibauer and junior Alexis Seymour. Neibauer will look to improve on her 20 points per game and nine rebounds per game average from a season ago. Seymour said what he sees in his No. 1 player.

“Anytime you have an athlete like that, it’s a treat,” Seymour said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be around Hallie (and) coaching Hallie, even when she was in third, fourth, fifth grade.”

“I’ve witnessed the development of her game and she’s only going to get better,” Seymour continued. “We’re looking at exploitng her talents.”

Neibauer, Seymour, and the Lady Sugarbeeters will play on the road at Choteau to open the 2023-24 season on Dec. 1
