The White County Warriorettes are preparing to get their new season underway.
A year ago, this team went 22-9 and 4-4 in district play, which led to them finishing their season in the Region 3A Quarterfinals against Bradley Central. The season got off to a great start, as they won their first 16 games before they finished 6-9 in their final 15.
One thing all the players emphasized in order for them to have another good year: a team-first mentality when it comes to facing challenges.
“I think we should all stay positive,” Senior Kendreah Reeves said. “We should be able to face adversity (well) throughout the year…I think we can go really far if we work together.”
Staying together as a team will certainly help once they hit the home stretch portion of the season, which could also help them avoid a stretch similar to the final 15 games of last year.
“To accomplish our goals, we just need to stay (together) as a team,” Junior Mia Murray said. “There’s no I in team, so putting our egos aside and playing as a team (will be important).”
With all of that being said, what is this team’s goal? After all, they were picked to finish high in the coaches’ and media polls.
For them, it’s simple: they want to make it to state.
“My goal, as a team, is to make it to state,” Senior Kanden Reeves said. “It’d be my first time going to state, and I want us to win as many games as we can…we have to work hard and never take days off to achieve that.”
