Girls basketball: Tigers drop three straight
Injuries, illness and a busy schedule combined to make a tough week for the Farmington girls basketball team.
The Tigers sit at 3-4 heading into this weekend’s appearance at the Monticello Tournament. The team then has a week off before beginning a three-game road trip with a game at Henry Sibley next Friday, Jan. 3. The Missota Conference season begins the following Tuesday with a contest at rival Northfield.
Chadwick returned to the lineup and scored a team-high 17 points in the loss to Woodbury. Morgan Mach paced the rest of the squad with six points and Kaitlyn Gorden grabbed a team-high four rebounds.
Mach and Alicia Hett dropped in 13 points apiece to pace the Tigers last Tuesday at Rosemount. Gallus led the team with six rebounds, three assists and three steals.
“The last three teams we have played are very good teams, so we knew we would be tested in this stretch. We saw some really good things this past week and have had kids step up to fill in for missing players,” Chadwick said. “However, we also saw some areas in which we need to improve on our execution and we will focus on that during this holiday break.”
