After recharging from Cuba, the Stettler senior girls’ basketball team was back in action on Thursday, Jan. 12 as they faced Lacombe Rams with newly-acquired skills.

Although they lost 59-55 in over time, Coach Kim Poapst is aware of the areas where the girls can improve and will be working with them before they play their next game.

“We were out rebounded in the first half, but had an excellent third quarter to pull ahead,” Poapst said. “We lacked discipline in our offence but will continue to work on that.”

Sadie Diegel had a great game offensively, while Reesa Garez fired the team up defensively, according to Poapst.

“We need to work on our teamwork, which is developing quite nicely and we are looking forward to games after exam week,” Poapst added.

The girls also played in a tournament this past weekend, losing to Three Hills, a very strong team that drove the hoop well.

“We will play them again at our home tournament and welcome the chance,” Poapst said.

Stettler will play a tournament in Lloydminster on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 27-28, followed by a home exhibition game on Monday, Jan. 30 against Ryley and then a make-up game on Tuesday, Jan. 31 in Red Deer against Notre Dame.
