Roy-Winifred Girls Basketball Team has Success in Their Blood
The relationship between brother and sister is always entertaining.
“I've never heard the end of, ‘Oh state champ, oh state champ, Jada do this state champ,'” said Jada Kananen.
When you add in the fact that your brother has achieved something you long to do?
“I'd say I bragged to her a bit after we won state,” said Chad Kananen. “She wants it pretty bad I think.”
Well, Roy-Winifred's posts Jada Kananen and Lorianne Stulc know all about that.
“Mine and Lorianne's both older brothers,” said Jada. “They both won the 2013 state championship. Ever since being there and watching that happen that's all Lorianne and I have ever wanted.”
Jada's older brother Chad, who won a state championship in 2013, and Lorianne's older brother Joe, who own a state championship in 2008, both play for Rocky Mountain College now.
As you can imagine, both know what it feels like to be number one in the state of Montana, and due to their siblings' storied history, both girls know a thing or two about playing in the spotlight as well.
“People expect a lot but you just go out and do your own thing and play your game and things will come. Definitely they got a reputation,” said Lorianne.
So what do the two who have a bit of experience at this state championship thing think of their sisters' quest to do the same?
“They look great. They're very big and very athletic. So they have a good chance at it,” said Chad.
“I think the sky's the limit for them,” said Joe. “They've already beat Belt once and they're the state favorite so what's stopping them from doing it again.”
The answer is nothing. And a little sibling rivalry doesn't hurt either.
“I'm excited to hopefully someday say, 'You know Chad, I'm a state champ now, too.'”
