Just two games into the 2020 basketball season and the Waldron Jr Lady Bulldogs are already breakin’ backboards and sinkin’ records. On Tuesday, November 10, the Lady Bulldogs opened the season with an away game against Fountain Lake. Although they didn’t take the win, they did pick up 22 points to get things rolling. On Thursday, the girls turned around and got back on the bus to take on the Jr Lady Gators of Two Rivers. The Lady Bulldogs stood firm in their court skills leading them to their first win in three years.
“The girls played hard and aggressive despite being in foul trouble,” explained coach, Tracie Adams, as she tried to contain her excitement from the 23-17 win. “Our leading scorer was freshman Guard, Daileigh Hunt, with 8 points followed by Reagan Adams and Katie Stringer. Emily Powell came off the bench to have 3 steals and 4 rebounds which was a big difference maker!”
Representing the freshmen Lady Bulldogs are Kaylee Redmon, Daileigh Hunt, Emily Powell, Reagan Adams, Alicia Sher, Katie Stringer, Kaylee Underwood, Darian Hunt, and Macee Ballance. And on the 8th-grade roster, Lauren Shores, Havien King, Pari Bharat, Emilee McConnell, Randa Rhodes, and Macee Owens. Up next for the Waldron Jr Lady Bulldogs will be the Lady Rattlers at Magazine on Tuesday, November 17 at 4 pm.
