The girls are looking forward to a strong season, and the new paint job on the floors, to spruce up the gym! Brylee Aldridge, senior, said, “I can’t wait for this season! We have a lot of potential on our team, so if we stick together and work hard we will have a great season.” The Lady Coyotes will start their season on the home court at 4:00 pm on August 28th.
