The girls’ basketball team is showing some success despite only four varsity players returning from last year.
The Lady T-Birds had a slow start, winning two out of the six games that they played for the first half of the season. The second half of the season however, has gone a lot smoother for the girls, winning two out of the four games they have played.
“I think the season is going good,” senior Mycha Owens said. “We are starting to come together as a team and learn what each player’s strategy is.”
The T-Birds started the 10th Annual 54 Classic on Tuesday in Cunningham. They were seeded sixth in the tournament and lost to the Norwich Eagles in the first round, 41-25.
“I think we played pretty good,” sophomore Jessica DeWeese said. “We had a couple of errors that got in our heads, and that caused us not to play as well as we could have.”
The Lady T-Birds will play the seventh seeded Kinsley Coyotes at 5 tonight. If they win, they will play for fifth place game at 3:30 p.m. If they lose Friday night, then they play at 2 p.m. for seventh place.
