Even though they just came off of a break and had limited practices, the North Lake Cowgirls basketball team came out energetic against Central Christian, 55-32, and also defeated Prospect Charter, 46-36.
On Friday, Jan. 3, the Cowgirls were back in action. The time off did not mean they were rusty, as they started off strong against Central Christian. Head Coach Lance Haberly was happy with the way his team started, especially coming off the break.
The team showed a lot of energy and made shots over Central Christian throughout the game, not letting the other team ever have a chance of getting back into the game. The Cowgirls ended up beating Central Christian, 55-32. Briana Church led the Cowgirls with 21 points.
The next night, Saturday, Jan. 4, the Cowgirls traveled to Prospect Charter and ground out a 46-36 win. While Haberly was worried that the team might have used too much energy with the earlier win, the team was able to grind it out from the start. North Lake was able to jump to an early lead and then were able to hold off Prospect Charter, as they fought to get back into the game.
Haberly did mention the team needs to work on maintaining its intensity throughout the entire game, but at the end of the day it was a good win. Briana Church once again led the team in scoring with 12 points.
The Cowgirls played on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at Paisley.
The Cowgirls will next host Rogue Valley Adventist Academy on Thursday, Jan. 9, at 5:30 p.m., and travel to Trinity Lutheran on Saturday, Jan. 11, at 2:20 p.m. and host Prospect Charter on Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 5 p.m.
The Cowgirls are undefeated in 1A-5 Mountain Valley League play with a record of 5-0 and a 7-3 overall record.
