Young and ready are two words that can describe this years women’s basketball team.

“There is a lot a potential with this years team.” sophomore Imonee Qualls said.

This years squad consist of three seniors, four juniors, three sophomores, and one freshman.

“It’s hard having such a young team because there isn’t enough team chemistry. The players haven’t known each other for long enough yet, but it will get better,” Qualls said.

Age however is not keeping these Tigers from great strives this season. “One of our strong points is that we are quick,” Qualls said.

Sophomore Katie Friedel added, “We have good penetration, and we have good outside shots.”

The team may have started with a record of 2-6 but plans to improve over the course of the season.

“We are going to get to know each other and have more team bonding”, Friedel said.

Daily practices help the girls discover each others strengths and weakness.

“We defiantly need to work together and learn to improve ourselves by learning from each other” sophomore Katie Friedel said.

Improving is the number one thing on everyone’s mind for the team, so they all have ideas on what could be done to make them even better.

“We just need to continue and learn everyone’s talents and try to show them”, Craig said.

“We will do nothing but improve the rest of the season”, Qualls said.

The Tigers next game is away at Cedar Rapids Xavier at 6:00 p.m.

Class of 2014
