CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Last season was by all accounts a rough one for the Lady Bison. Going winless could have pushed some players away from returning to the court the following season, but their coach said it had the opposite effect on his team. This group was even more hungry to go back to work and ultimately make last year just a blip on the radar.

“A lot of kids could’ve taken that, and maybe decided that basketball wasn’t for them. We didn’t have any of that. A week after we ended the season, kids were like ‘hey can we get into this spring league down in Colorado?’ [I said] Absolutely. Of course we can. So to see those kids come back and want more, and want to right the ship, it was really something that was exciting from the coaching standpoint,” head coach Brodie Epler said.

That type of attitude shows the character of this Lady Bison squad, and they’re returning a lot of players that saw significant minutes last season.

South did lose eight seniors, but not all of them had as much time on the court as some the girls who are back this year. That bodes well for the future of the program both in the short term and long term, and with all of this experience under their belt the team is determined to prove themselves.

“We want to do better. We want to win games. We want to show people that we’re not just what everybody thinks we are, like all of our teams losing. We want to try and make a point this year,” senior Bailey Williams said.

The team begins their season on Thursday.
