Chemistry, Post-Play Key For Lady Tigers Basketball

The 2018 campaign for the DeKalb County Lady Tigers proved to be a successful one, as they made it to the State Quarterfinals where they lost to Marshall County.

This year could be more of the same for the Lady Tigers, as they say they have something that they haven’t had a lot of in the past: height.

“A lot of (our success) will have to do with our post-play this year,” senior Megan Walker said. “We’ll get a lot more (out of) our post-play than in the past, because we’ve had really small teams.”

When a team loses three players, it can be a challenge to replace that chemistry that one builds through years of playing together. DeKalb’s players are quick to point out that their chemistry will once again be a strength of theirs.

“I think a lot of hustling and communication will get us (to our goals),” senior Kenzie France said. “(We need to) keep doing what we’ve been doing, but also do it the way (Head Coach Danny Fish) wants it done.”

Walker also likes the way the team works together.

“I think that our camaraderie will still be really good,” Walker said. “We’ll still be really good. We lost three players and we’ve got a couple newer ones, but I think our chemistry is really good this year.”

Both players are seniors, which means this is their last go-around for their school. This means that they are going to give their all and the expectation that France has for the team is high.

“I want my last year here at DeKalb to be my best one yet,” France said. “By that, I mean that I would like to finish top-5 in the state.”
