The Wiggins junior varsity Lady Tigers took third place in the Wiggins Holiday Tournament that took place on December 12 and 13.
Freshman JV point guard Courtney Jenson said she was proud of her team and was happy that they came back from a loss and were able to win their second game. Jenson starts JV, and she subs in on varsity. “We still have a lot of improvements to make, but overall I am proud that we took third,” said Jenson.
Head Coach Jim Dechant thinks his girls have made significant improvements in the way they are playing. “We are passing better, shooting better, and playing better overall in the games,” said Dechant. Dechant thinks that his team will do very well; he knows that they will not win every game, but he hopes that they will win a lot more games than last year.
The Lady Tigers lost their first game against the Deer Trail Eagles 24 to 16. After their loss, they played the Bruce Randolph Grizzlies. The Lady Tigers beat the Grizzlies 28 to 14.
Freshman center Tori Jordan said she thinks that her team made a lot of improvements from their first games, and she is excited for the rest of the season. “We played a lot better than our previous games, and even though we didn’t win the tournament, I’m still proud of my team,” said Jordan.
The Wiggins Lady Tigers play again on December 18 against the Weld Central Rebels at the Wiggins Event Center, and they play the Byers Bulldogs December 19 in Byers.
