Breathitt County Lady Cats looking to improve under new head coach

JACKSON, Ky, (WYMT) - The Breathitt County Lady Cats only tallied three wins last year and will feature a young team this season with only four upperclassmen.

But under new head coach Misty McAlarnis, the Lady Cats are looking forward to improving their game.

"Coach (McAlarnis) has definitely been preaching to us to just improve every day, push yourself really hard at practice and do what you can to make yourself better so that you can help the team," said senior Hannah Griffith.

"It's really sad, I'm looking forward to my senior season but it's sad that it is getting ready to end," said senior Amy Brewer.

"Go to Districts, and just keep going and work together and be a team. We are a young team, and we just want to make everyone better," said junior Bayleigh Miller.

"I'm looking forward to just doing the games and playing with my team, being there with my team," said senior Brianna Henson.

"The girls have responded well, they are working hard as a team, and that is always a good thing," said McAlarnis. "I am going to be patient, we have a young team. We have a few upperclassmen, four total juniors and seniors, the rest of my team is made up of sophomores and under but these older girls are doing a good job of taking care of the younger girls and bringing them along and I am thankful for the ones that I have for doing that especially for being a new coach."

Breathitt County opens up their season with Riverside Christian on November 28th.
