Lady Clovers Positive, Upbeat As 2011-2012 Season About To Begin
The Lady Clovers are beginning the 2011-2012 season with their fourth head coach in five seasons and this year appears to have the makings of one of their most promising in some time.
“I thought last night went very well for us,” coach Langdon said. “We came out with a confident attitude and I think that showed. Typically we haven’t been a great shooting team, but last night we shot over 40-percent from the field, so that was great to see. I think a lot of it was just us coming out with a better attitude and with confidence. The girls were excited and it was great to see the girls on the bench cheering the others on.”
“Paige (Gruener) had a good shooting night for us,” coach Langdon noted. “She reached doubledigits with 12 points. Other than that it was a complete team effort on scoring. We had, I think, eight other girls score from the floor, getting anywhere from two to six points. That’s how we’re going to have to be this year. Hopefully we’ll get a girl or two in double figures, but it’s going to have to be a team effort on the offensive end.”
The Lady Clovers did seem to come out with a little fire in their belly, hungry for the season at hand and ready to prove just what they can do.
“We did some good things,” coach Langdon added. “We still have to get a lot better both on the defensive end and offensively, but we saw some good things last night.”
The Lady Clovers will officially open their season Tuesday evening when they travel to Tri- West to take on the host Lady Bruins. Junior varsity action is set to begin at 6:00 p.m., with the varsity match-up to tip-off at around 7:30.
