The Warsaw Tournament was the season kickoff for the girls basketball team. While the team did not place in the tourney, they did come away with one exciting win against Lincoln in the second round 38-36.

Coach Cody Morgan said he thought the girls played hard and had a real chance to win a trophy. One of the season goals the team made was to play for a trophy in each of the three tournaments (Warsaw, Skyline and Russellville).

Throughout the tournament, the girls seemed to have had a rough start but now improvements are being made.

Monday Dec. 1 was the first game of the season for the Warsaw Ladycats. The girls played against Cole Camp and ended the game with a score of 24-68.

“We don’t have much height,” said junior Kylie McRoberts. She added that the team needed to work on pushing the ball down the floor.

“For the first full game we played pretty well for the beginning season,” McRoberts said.

On Wednesday Dec. 3 the girls played their second game against Lincoln and brought an intense game with the winning score of  38-36.

“It felt good to win because it was a very hard game and we played really well,” junior Raven Caswell said.

“We played really well and came together the second half,” McRoberts said.

Friday Dec. 5 the girls played against Lakeland with a close score of  56-46.

The girls felt they played hard and played together like a team.

“I thought I played well felt like I let my team down when I fouled out  but other than we played pretty well,” junior Emilee Proctor said.

Warsaw will be competing in the Skyline and Russellville tournaments throughout the season.

Coach Cody Morgan has a list of improvements to work on this season.

“ I expect them to play hard and continue to improve,” coach Morgan said.

Hopes for a successful season are high as the girls continue to practice and become stronger as a team.
