It’s a new year, and with that there’s a new basketball season right around the corner. The Lady Tigers are back in action, coming back from 28 – 0 winning season last year.

Coach Hughes put the ladies through their first week’s practice last week.

“Practice is just getting started, but I’m expecting them to be competitive,” Hughes said.

Hughes has a few key players he is expecting to step up this year.

“We have a lot of tough girls who expect to make it back to the state tournament,” Hughes said.

Senior Taylor Jones says it won’t be an easy year, and it’ll take hard work and dedication.

“When my team needs me, I will perform like I need to and give my all,” Jones said.

The Lady Tigers’ first game of the season is Mon., Nov. 24 at home.
