“Our girls realize, with some of these teams who may be faster of bigger than us, we have to play our game and not be drawn in to playing theirs.”
The pre-district season has presented a nice variety of game situations for the Lady Roos (as is the intent for non-district play), and they have responded well in games where they may have fallen behind early or dealt with the pressure of overtime games.
“We have been in game situations this year and I’ve told the girls ‘these are really good tests for the kind of things we are going to encounter during district’” Shearmire said. “We still have a lot of little things we have to work on and keep improving on, because with some of the teams we will face, our margin of error will be smaller, but I really think our girls realize that and can respond.”
The Lady Roos begin their district campaign on the road Tuesday, facing the Lady Vikings at Arlington Lamar.
