The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team went 1-5 in the Fredericksburg tournament played Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 10-12.
“We are plagued with injuries right now. We played all six games without three of our starters,” head coach Carrie Grona said.
“We were just focused on surviving without getting anyone else hurt.”
The girls went 1-1 on the first day of the tournament when they beat Marion, 45-42, and lost to Burnet, 54-38. They lost both games the second day, 38-32 to Savio and 51-35 to the Mason Punchers.
On Saturday, the girls fell in their last two games of the tournament, 69-60, against Smithville, and 47-46 against Laredo Martin.
“We went 1-5, but lost four close games and I was pleased how well we played without some key players,” Grona said.
“Our younger players really stepped up this past weekend. We just need to focus more on execution, rebounding and FT’s.”
