DOUGLAS, Wyo. The Lady Cats enter this season as the defending state champs for the 2nd year in a row.
"So winning the past two years, it has been a motivator for us to keep pushing and see how farther we can go. We have a really good chance of winning state again but that comes with a lot of hard work and a humble mindset," said Junior Allyson Fertig.
After losing two starters from last year, the Lady Cats still return most of their bench. In addition, the team this year has lots of varsity experience to make filling those holes easier.
The Lady Cats know winning a state championship doesn't come easy, they are prepared to work hard to get three in a row.
"We definitely know everyone is out to get us and that is the team they want to beat and so it kind of lights a fire under us knowing that we have to be better. Our practices have to be intense, everything has to be right down to the spot to be able to compete at the high level," said Senior Riley Seeds.
The Lady Cats are already 4-0 on the year and will play next on Dec. 20 at Lander the Douglas-Lander classic.
