The JV Lady Bulldogs basketball squad had an uncharacteristic off night last Tuesday night against the Wimberley Texans, losing a hard fought game by the score of 51-41. The ladies fell behind early, and weren't able to overcome untimely mistakes in the loss.
"It was hard because we knew we could beat them," junior guard Laurynn Winters said. "We just got ahead of ourselves and went into the game thinking it would be easy. They came out hot and gave us a run for our money."
All season long the Lady Bulldogs have thrived off of creating turnovers and causing havoc for opposing offenses. The tables were turned on the ladies against Wimberley however, as the Texans forced the Lady Bulldogs into several miscues that stopped the ladies offense from gaining any momentum.
"Taking care of the ball is very important, because once we start to lose control and turn the ball over it's hard to pull out a win," junior Dana Lohrke said.
Offensively, the Lady Bulldogs were able to put up 41 points but were unable to overcome the defensive strength of the Texans. The Lady Bulldogs were led in scoring by junior Jeneive Casarez with 12 and Lohrke with 11 points.
"I definitely think we could improve on our offense a bit more," junior guard Mary Hevenor said. "We clique together as a team so it's definitely something we can work through and make it happen."
The Lady Bulldogs took on Boerne on Tuesday, and will host the Navarro Panthers tomorrow night before hosting Fredericksburg in the season finale next Tuesday.
"If we can take care of the ball, play good defense, and work together as a team, we should have no problem finishing off our season on a winning note," Lohrke said.
