The Medina girls’ basketball team is working to get better with each game in the new season under new Head Coach Dawn Tisdale. Tisdale and assistant coach, Lyndsie Faglie, have emphasized this is a rebuilding year.

“Our athletes are showing improvement daily in their skills and knowledge of the game. The pieces are coming together slowly, but they are coming together. The style of basketball that we are playing is much different than they are used to, and they are showing great attitudes as they go through the failure stage of learning something new,” Tisdale explained.

The Lady ‘Cats are getting more analytical.

“We want our girls to learn to break down and actually play defense as well as learn to read the defense and take advantage of what they give us. These skills, as well as basic fundamentals, are being worked on daily. Right now it's not about winning or losing, it's about executing", Tisdale said.

Each game is a learning experience, almost like learning to walk before you run. The team is somewhere in between in their most recent games. 

After an open date, the Medina girls managed to score 27 points against Sabinal in a 52-27 loss last Tuesday, Nov. 28. Madeleine Emmons was high scorer for Medina with eight points, followed by Grace Harrison with five points.

On Friday, Dec. 1, the Lady ‘Cats hosted Stacey and lost the game, 51-23.  Stats for that game were unavailable by the Bulletin’s editorial deadline.

Next up, the Lady ‘Cats will be part of the 68th Annual Medina Basketball Tournament starting Thursday and running through Saturday, Dec. 7-9, in Medina.
