BEATTYVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - The Lee County Lady Kats tallied a 17-13 record a season ago but lost some key pieces from that team.
This year, the Lady Kats will feature a young team, but head coach Matt Watterson says that the youth bodes well for this season and for years to come.
"Having a young team, they don't know what they can't do so I don't have to un-coach them out of those things," said Watterson. "But I think in the long run it will be better for us. in the years to come, I think that it will be better for us because we are so young. They are going to get thrown into the fire pretty quick."
"It is going to be pretty difficult, but if we all work together we can figure it out," said Sara Estes. "Just hard work and helping the younger ones with the fundamentals and stuff, we can do it."
"We have a few plays set for our offense and I feel like for our defense, man to man, two-three," said Hannah Ross. "It just depends on what team we are playing, we have to know the shooters, get out on the shooters and just make sure that we keep the inside protected."
"I just hope that we can achieve as much as we did last year because we had a really good season last year," said Abby Hogan. "I hope that we can work together knowing that we lost two really big assets to our team last year."
"We have a lot of guards, so it's going to be really quick," said Kenzie Slone. "A lot of fast breaks and we shoot a lot around the perimeter and we shoot inside out."
