PINEVILLE, Ky (WYMT) – After a record-setting season in 2012, the Bell County Lady Cats are hoping to continue that success.
Head Coach David Teague talked about last season, “Well we did have a very good year last year. We had a lot of records we set at our school as far as wins in a season and things, and that's just stuff we want to continue to build upon. We didn't accomplish our ultimate goal we wanted to accomplish last year by losing in the finals of the region, but I think that gives us a little experience.”
The Lady Cats went 27-6 last season. They won the district title in the 52nd, but lost in the 13th Region Championship to Corbin.
Junior Guard Maci Morris talked about how that loss motivates them heading into this season, “Our loss in the championship of region just motivates us to work 10 times harder so we don't have to make that mistake again, make sure we can come out on top. And be ready to play every game.”
Bell County returns quite a bit from last season, losing only two seniors to graduation.
Junior Point Guard Jessica Sanders said, “We had a good season last year, we accomplished many things, and we all just came together as a team, and with only losing just two players brought us together.”
The expectations are high for the Bell County Lady Cats, and the girls want this season to be a success.
Senior Guard Morgan Garnett smiled and said, “It's one of the best Bell County girls teams that have come here in a while, so I just want them to be able to look back and say, ‘Man that was a heck of a team. They were really good, they played together and got a lot accomplished.’”
The Lady Cats kick off their season December 4th in the Cumberland Falls Invitational Tournament at Corbin.
