“Practice has been going really well. The girls are working hard and getting used to me and the other coaches. Right now we are working on offensive transitions and taking care of the ball,” said Woodward. “I am putting in my system of coaching and even though it is different the girls are adapting well.”


Woodward is working hard with the girls and is introducing new plays to help them be successful this year. Woodward sees a lot of positive qualities in the team and has not had to face many challenges so far this year.


“We have a lot of leaders on the team. The seniors are teaching and encouraging the younger girls. I like encourage the team to be positive and they are really great at working with the girls and doing little things to help out,” said Woodward.


Woodward says that she is really looking forward to the season. The players are excited and are working hard. Woodward says that she is bringing in new plays for the girls and even though they question it at first, they are beginning to see the end result and they are excited.


The Lady Cougars will have a scrimmage on Monday as they travel to Edmonson County. The first regular season game will be on Friday December 6 at Todd County High School. The Lady Cougars will play at 6 p.m. and the Cougars will follow.
