7th Grade Gold Fillys
The 7th Grade Gold Fillys had a rough start to the second half of their season with a loss to Crystal City on January 10th. Coach Shana Beaty said, “We really should have won this game. Free throws killed us. My girls went to the line 5 times during this game and we missed all 10, but the girls ran their offense. Ran play….our shots just wouldn’t go in when we needed them to. The girls were disappointed, but I wasn’t. We played hard.”
