The Redhawks fell to the challenge against Lone Star High School in District 9-5A play Tuesday, with both basketball teams losing to the Rangers, the girls in overtime (41-34) and the boys 66-58.

For junior Ashley Anderson, past performance this season has given her and her teammates raised hopes for a postseason run with the playoffs starting Feb. 8-9.  

“Our strengths were based on our chemistry as a team,” Anderson said via text. “We just wanted to play for each other and do what we had to do in order to win.”

Determined to push on after a defeat, senior Connor Hulstein feels the boys’ team is ready for another win.

“One thing we need to improve on would be getting back on defense in transition,” Hulstein said. “We have been working on some shooting and it has made us hungry for more wins.”
