PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - It was a solid season last year for the Bell County Lady Cats as they tallied a 19-10 overall record, a 10-7 record in the 13th Round.
But their season ended abruptly in the first round of the 52nd District Tournament.
This year, Bell County will feature a young team with only two seniors on the roster. This group of Lady Cats wants to get to the region tournament.
"I am interested in seeing how we develop as the season goes along and there is going to be some growing pains with stuff because we are young and early, but the goal is to move along with things to get ourselves better as the season progresses," said Bell County girls' basketball head coach David Teague.
"There is a lot of learning to it, since we don't have a lot of experience we are able to learn a lot more from coach and that helps a lot," said junior guard Abigail Harris.
"To make it to region, because most of our players have never been before," said senior center MaKenzie Griffin. "We just have to work together."
"Definitely go to Region, I don't think anybody on our team has been to region or anything like that so that would be a really big goal," said junior forward Ashley Middleton.
"I'm excited because we are all friends and we are all really close and we have a lot of fun together," said senior forward Brea Browning. "So win or lose we will have a good season either way."
Bell County opens up their season with Lee (VA) on November 27.
