“Both games this week allowed us to work on some fundamentals and continue to isolate areas for improvement,” said Coach Perry Smalls. “This week we’ll have to be prepared and play our best game against Ashley Ridge. It should be a good game for us and we hope to have a full house at both home games this week.”
The Lady Cougars are scheduled to host Region VIII-AAAAA Ashley Ridge on Wednesday Dec. 12 and entertain Bamberg on Friday Dec. 14 at Cougar Gymnasium.
