The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team was starting to gain momentum, after winning, 60-31, on Nov. 23 over the Llano Yellowjackets, and again on Nov. 24 over the Lampasas Badgers, 49-40, but on Monday Nov. 30 they fell to La Vernia, 51-43.
“We have to be an inside/outside team this year and the players [are] starting to figure it out,” Head Coach Carrie Grona said.
“The more our posts touch the ball, the more successful we will be this season. We just need to stay focused.”
The Nov. 23 game at home against Llano was promising. The second quarter was the story as FHS outscored Llano, 23-5, building the lead they would maintain the rest of the game, winning, 60-31.
Abby Spurgin scored 30 points over the Yellowjackets and grabbed 12 rebounds for a double-double and FHS as a team shot 63 percent from the free throw line to complete the blowout.
