After last year’s Lady Tigers season fell short, getting third in State. The Lady Tigers have a younger squad this year due to the loss of key seniors.

This year’s team is younger and doesn’t have as much talent as last year, and we are smaller,” head Coach Michael Green said.

As they enter conference play, they sit at 11, but with each game, the young team becomes more experienced.

“The goal this season is to get better each and every game and let the chips fall where they may,” Coach Green said.

The Lady Tigers lost their redemption game against North Little Rock, who knocked them out of the tournament last season.

“This year we don’t have as much size, but we play as a team,” senior captain Jordan Greenwood said.

This year’s Tigers are lead by Ariyanna Hall, Jordan Greenwood, and Lauryn Pendleton.

“This is everyone’s first year playing together, so every game we are building,” Greenwood said.

Entering  the back half of the season, they are looking at the teams that they were beat by as stepping stones, taking one game at a time.

“I feel like the teams we lost to, we will make it a better game, we are growing closer as a team each and every game,” Jordan Greenwood said.

The Lady Tigers next game will be against the number one seed Wampus Cats who defeated them Jan. 19, 68-29.
