The Lady Titans suffered a loss last Friday against the ThunderRidge Grizzlies. This came after they won the three previous games before losing to ThunderRidge. The girls overall is currently 9-6. They will be playing a game tonight at Rock Canyon at 7 p.m.

“In 5A we’ve never won more than nine games. We’re feeling pretty good right now. Having 12 wins would give us a winning record. We’re really focused on hitting double digits in wins [this season],” Coach Eli Moore said.

Sophomore Haley Hildenbrand was chosen as Player of the Game for the Heritage game that the Titans won. “My best game so far has been Heritage. I had 14 points that game. I played well and hard. I attribute [my success to] my coaches and my dad.”

This is Hildenbrand’s first year playing on the varsity level. “I like [playing on varsity more]  than junior varsity. You have a family and it’s so much better. It’s really fun,” Hildenbrand said. “It’s interesting [being the only sophomore on the team]. You feel kind of by yourself. But the juniors make me feel like I’m a part of the team,” Hildenbrand said.
