The Lady Trojans played their season opener game against ThorpHigh School on Friday, December, 11th.The Lady Trojans got off to a very slow start really struggling to make their easy" shots, but as the game went along things got a lot better and the defensive’s pressure really helped them pull away.
Thorp was a lot bigger than the Lady Trojans were at 4 of the 5 spots on the floor and our girls really out hustled them to many offensive rebounds. We learned a lot from this game though; we now realize that we really need to work on free-throws (2-13,) passing and help defense. The girls came away from the game with the one thing that we had hoped to gain and that was confidence.
Hailey Ellsworth had a good game with 12 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals while running the point for most of the game. Cheyanne McFadden came up with 2 points, 4 rebounds and 4 steals.
