Lady Cubs start basketball season 1-1

The Olney Girls basketball team started their basketball season during Thanksgiving break against Munday and Bryson, losing the first and winning the second. The game against Munday was on Monday, Nov. 21, and the game against Bryson was the next day in Bryson.

The game against Munday was close. The girls were winning until the fourth quarter. They led in the first quarter 7-4; second quarter 11-9, and up in the third 16-12. But Munday took the lead in the fourth and won 22-27.

Next was the game Tuesday against Bryson. This time the Lady Cubs led at the end of each quarter all the way to a 34-20 victory.

Coach Joshua Reese said, “The girls are getting better each day and that’s all I can ask of them. They are picking up and learning our system that I am implementing. It’s going to take time but the more we rehearse it the better we will be. The girls are doing the best that they can and as the head coach I couldn’t be more proud of them and all their effort and hard work.”
