Lady Wolves lose three in Cheyenne


January 10, 2018

The Green River High School Lady Wolves basketball team struggled this weekend and lost all three games.

The team traveled to Cheyenne to complete in the Cheyenne Invite.

On Thursday, the Lady Wolves played Laramie and came up short, 52-45.

“We started out really well,” head coach Rick Carroll said.

During the first quarter of this game, the Lady Wolves took Laramie by surprise, however, the team wasn’t doing as well in the last three quarters.

“After that, we didn’t do a good job on offense,” he said. “We were turning the ball over, which is limiting our possessions to try and score.”

On Friday, the team played Sheridan and lost, 47-36, while on Saturday the team played Cheyenne Central and lost, 60-46.

Carroll said the team struggled over the weekend in all three games with turnovers, passing and not making shots.

“We’re not shooting the ball very well,” he said.

However, Carroll said the team did play good defense throughout all of the games, but then they would have lapses.

“We’re just really inconsistent,” he said.

During the first quarter, in all three games, the Lady Wolves were playing good basketball, but the coach Carroll has noticed the team struggles in the second and fourth quarters. He’s not sure if it’s because they are getting tired or if something else is causing it.

A positive Carroll saw in all of the games was the Lady Wolves rebounds.

“We’re a pretty good rebounding team,” he said.

Another area the Lady Wolves struggled in this weekend, was failing to make the free-throw shots.

In preparation for this week’s home games against Cheyenne South on Friday at 6 p.m., and Laramie at 1 p.m., on Saturday, the team will work on doing a better job of passing the ball to where it needs to go.

“We’re having a hard time seeing that open person,” Carroll said.

Leading the team in the Laramie game, was Ashelyn Birch with 20 points, two blocks and two steals, followed by Andri Dewey with 10 points, nine assists, two blocks and one steal and Hannah Hix with eight points, one assist, two blocks and three steals.

Leading the team in the Sheridan game, was Birch with nine points, three blocks and three steals, followed by Hix with eight points, one block and one steal, Aaliyah Brady with seven points, three blocks and three steals and Dewey with six points, four assists and three steals.

Leading the team in the Cheyenne Central game, was Birch with 18 points and one block, followed by Dewey with 11 points, three assists and one steal and Erika Wilson with eight points, two assists and one block.
