After a Tough Week, Girls Basketball Looks to Improve

The Lady Titans lost two straight games last week. They played on Jan. 7 against the Mesa Ridge Grizzlies, losing 62-27. The next day, the girls played against the Pine Creek Eagles and were defeated 45-39. The two losses ended a three game winning streak.

“I think the losses have made us stronger. They have given us something to learn from,” Junior Captain Megan Jordan said.

While Jordan is the team captain, the team has also been impacted by a surprising player, junior point guard Kristen Gallagher. She has played good defense, with an averaging two steals per game.

Despite the outcome of the two previous games, the girls overall record is 6-4. The team plays 13 more games before the season is over. The Lady Titans will be playing tonight against the Cougars at Cherokee Trail at 7 o’clock.

“[The season] is going good. We still have a lot of things to work on. But if we just work on the little things, we should be set,” Jordan said.
