Erika Wilson readies herself for a shot during practice last week. The Lady Wolves basketball team start their season this weekend with a tournament in Casper.

The Lady Wolves basketball team has been hitting the courts for the past couple of weeks to prepare for the season.

"We have a lot of girls that have come out to play basketball this year," head coach Rick Carroll said.

So far, he's noticed how positive the players' attitudes are and how quickly they are unifying as a team.

This year, 36 Lady Wolves from freshman to seniors have been at practices, consisting of four seniors, nine juniors, 10 sophomores and 13 freshmen.

"We all practice at the same time," he said.

During practice, players are mixed and matched to see which players work well together and were their strengths are.

"We'll mix it up pretty good," Carroll said. "There's a variety of skill levels."

This week, the Lady Wolves will travel to Casper to compete in a tournament, which is scheduled to take place Thursday through Saturday. They will face Natrona County Thursday, Cody on Friday and Laramie on Saturday.

"It's a good chance to play some games after we've practiced 12 times," Carroll said.

Last year, the Lady Wolves season was plagued with injuries, but all of those who suffered injuries last year are healthy and ready to play, he said.

"We're very optimistic," Carroll said about the season. "We think we will be a very competitive in our league."

He said competing in tournaments before the regular season starts is a way to see where the team stacks up compared to other 4A teams and where they need to make improvements before conference play begins.

"We're going to get a good look and see where we're at," Carroll said.
