Under new head coach, Morgan Ballard, the girls’ team placed second in the T-Bird Classic Tournament.
The team first played Stafford on Tuesday night and won 48-10. The first time the team let Stafford score was in the middle of the the third quarter.
“It was nice to start off the rest of the tournament with a win under our belt,” senior Hanna Baird said. “It gave us confidence.”
Friday was an emotional game for the team, playing against Pretty Prairie and the late coach Chuck Young’s son, CT. They won 31-19.
“As long as I’ve been in high school we’ve never beat Pretty Prairie and that was one thing Coach Young always wanted to do,” Baird said. “It was nice to do that in honor of him.”
For the final night of the tournament the girls faced Medicine Lodge. The team had a rough first half going into halftime with a score of 21-6. After coming out after halftime the team outscored Medicine Lodge but still lost 45-38.
“I thought we finished well and it was a good start to the season,” senior Jessica DeWeese said. “ However, I know we can do better and keep improving.”
Looking forward, the team hopes to have a 3-3 record to start the holiday break.
