Girls start conference with 1-1 record


Things are looking up for the Lady Wolves varsity basketball team.

The team ended their first weekend of conference play with a 1-1 record. The girls lost their match to Evanston Thursday 54-49, but were able to defeat Riverton, 55-40, Saturday night.

Head coach Rick Carroll said the girls have improved their ball handling skills and have cut down the number of turnovers they’ve had.

Also, Carroll said the girls are becoming more proficient at reading the floor and creating more scoring options for the team.

“We’re doing better,” Carroll said.

During the game with Evanston, Taylor Stoeger scored 17 points and Averee Cobb scored 14. Stoeger also recored five steals, while Hattie Hix lead the Wolves’ rebounding efforts with six rebounds.

For the Riverton game, Emily White scored 16 points, Cobb scored 11, while Stoeger scored 9 and Mariah Morin scored 8.

The Lady Wolves’ next game is in Rock Springs and Carroll expects the full experience of a rivalry game for his team.

“It’s one of the few times that they will play in that kind of environment,” Carroll said. “A lot of folks will be there; a lot of people cheering.”

Carroll said he expects to see a patient Rock Springs offense seeking great shooting opportunities while practicing a zone defense and full-court press.

Black out

The upcoming match in Rock Springs will be a blackout game for Wolves fans. Spectators are encouraged to wear black at the game. The varsity girls game will start at 5:30 p.m. while the varsity boys take the court at 7:30 p.m.
