Wesson Lady Cobras are 0-6, still looking for their first win. They have lost some extremely close games, the double overtime loss to West Lincoln and the overtime loss to St. Andrews. But the Lady Cobras are still fighting hard and not giving up so quickly. Coach Magee said this week, “We are an inexperienced team with only one player with experience. My seniors have been stepping up being leaders and setting the tone for hustle and heart. We are going to have to hustle and work hard in practice. In the games, we have missed lay ups and free throws have killed us. We are improving every game and that’s our goal, to improve and be ready for when district games start.”
