Going into Tuesday’s game, everyone came prepared. The coach came up with a game plan and the team heightened the energy with a roaring chant.

“We are going to play a man to man defense, a little bit of zone, and we are going to press them,” said Coach Fandino. “We know they are going to play a two three zone and if we are able to execute, we are going to be fine. I hope we win.”

On Jan. 12, West Ranch girls’ basketball lost 43-30 against Saugus. Captain Katie Joiner addressed both the team’s strengths and weaknesses in hopes of improving for future games.

“In my opinion, the game didn’t go so well today,” said Joiner. “We played hard but couldn’t execute much. Our strengths were being able to push the ball ahead, but we need to work on communication.”

Despite the eventual loss, the game remained close until the fourth quarter. Multiple threes by Katie Joiner and Aaliyah Austin contributed greatly to the team’s score, but Saugus proved to be a tough match up. The four sophomores in the starting lineup were a challenge for West Ranch to keep up with, but West Ranch continued to give maximum effort and had a couple moments where they shined.

With a long season still ahead, the Lady Cats have time to win a few more games and hopefully make playoffs. Join the team in their next game on Jan. 16 against Valencia at the Ranch at 5:00. Good luck Cats!
