Tipping off the 2019-2020 season Friday night, girls’ basketball is hosting Mansfield Timberview  in a non-district game in The Nest starting at 7:00 p.m.

“It’s a good opponent,” head girls’ basketball coach Ross Reedy said. “Both of us have lost quite a few people they still have a lot of talent. It’s really good for us to kind of see where we’re at, at this point, we have a lot of good young talent on program.”

Despite only two returning varsity players, junior Maya Jain and sophomore Jazzy Owens, Owens is ready to help lead the team.

“Really it’s just about like experience and I feel like our experience is going to really help us lead this year,” Owens said. “As well as like her being like a two year returner, she has a little bit more experienced than me so I feel like we’re learning every day and every practice.”

With a difficult preseason playing teams like Duncanville and Prosper, Jain believes this will set them up for success during District 9-5A.

“Our preseason is really hard,” Jain said. “I think we have it harder before so we get used to playing better teams and then during season we know just to play the same way, and hope for the same outcome.”
