Women's basketball team to focus on the journey

The Cleveland State University women’s basketball season is just days away from the opening tip-off.

The Vikings began their season with an exhibition game against Muskingum University on Nov. 1 followed by the regular season opener against Ball State University on Nov. 11 — both played at the Wolstein Center.

The lady Vikings are under head coach Kate Peterson Abiad who is entering her 15th season leading the green and white.

This year, Peterson Abiad and her staff are taking an entirely different approach to their coaching philosophy.
In the past, like most coaches, the team set goals, or talked about winning championships. This season, however, the program from top to bottom is focusing on discipline.

The team spent the entire preseason talking about how to develop a disciplined, experienced and united team.

Players are focusing on all the little details to give them a chance to be good, and to improve from their 14-16 finish last season.

Peterson Abiad said the mantra is, “With one eye on the prize, you only have one eye for the journey,” and continued, “and we want both eyes on the journey.”

The Vikings have nine players returning this season — most of the top players being juniors and seniors. 

Shadae Bosley, senior forward, says tries to lead by example out on the court. Bosley is not as vocal as some of her teammates, but her team relies on her quiet leadership.

“For most of us this is it. I know we don’t talk about the end goal, like winning a championship, but we want it,” she said. “There’s a sense of urgency for sure.”
