The season for the Lady Bulldogs opened up at home against Southeast Valley. The game was a closely fought battle with the Jaguars pulling away late in the game to win with a score of 55 to 47. 

The Lady Bulldogs’ leading scorer for the night was Ashton Boggess, who put up 16 points. Boggess chipped in with 3 rebounds and 4 steals as well. Junior Abby Langel had 11 points while connecting on three 3 pointers. Langel played a complete game as she had six rebounds and four assists. Sophomores Gabby Ross and Meredith Adreon had eight and seven points respectively. Ross had a very strong game on the glass with seven rebounds. 

The Lady Bulldogs shot 32 percent from the field and 52 percent from the free throw line, but the area that hurt the Lady Bulldogs the most were turnovers. The girls combined for a total of 20 turnovers in the game. That is an area where Coach Ben Van Wyk would like to see improvement. 

“The girls played hard. We took good shots. They just didn’t fall in,” said the coach. “On the defensive side of the ball, Makayla Dozier and Faith Mohr came off the bench and did a very nice job. We do need to take better care of the basketball. We had a few too many turnovers. I thought for our first game we came out here and did a lot of good things.”

The girls’ season continues on Monday, Nov.27 at home against Greene County. The JV game starts at 6 p.m. followed by the varsity game.
