This hasn’t been the easiest season for the Carl Albert girls’ basketball team, but Dava Guy has maintained a positive attitude, a skill taught to her by her grandmother, who is her role model.

The senior forward has played basketball since the age of four and still loves playing, even though the Titans have had a difficult time on the court lately, going 2-10 over a 12-game span, including five straight losses.

“This season has been challenging and I hope that I can help my teammates get to state,” said Guy, who led the Titans with 13.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game last season.

She knows that displaying good character makes a big difference, especially when things aren’t necessarily going very well.

“Having good character means having a good mindset to me,” said Guy, who also plays soccer at Carl Albert. “On the court after mistakes are made, I tell my teammates it’s okay and to keep their heads up.”

As she competes in her final high school season, Guy is relishing the opportunity to play one last season with a group of teammates she has a deep bond with.

“My favorite thing about competing for my high school is that I get to play with the same girls I’ve played for since sixth grade,” said Guy, who plans on attending the Air Force Academy next year.
