Coached by James Whittaker, Rudy Triska, and Bridgett McDowell, these Lady Tigers are fine-tuning their skills for Jr High play. The girls defeated two teams from Lavaca, two Charleston teams, and one Booneville team, all of which have led to their winning season so far.

Mansfield 1 Lady Tigers’ latest victims were the Lady Bearcats of Booneville. The girls used the first half of the game to get their feet under them, resulting in a slow start. The Lady Tigers went into halftime with the scoreboard reading 4-3 Mansfield.

A pep talk from their coaches must have been all that they needed because when the second half of the game started, so did the Lady Tigers grit. They kept control of the ball and their home court and ended the game with a final score of 16-11 Mansfield. The fifth and sixth grade Lady Tigers will continue practicing hard so that when their end of season tournament begins, they will be back with a vengeance.
