The 2019-2020 edition of Lady Mustang Basketball is working hard to prepare for their season-opening benefit game on November 9th at Lake Hamilton.
A solid senior class of Britney Williams, who will sign with Ouachita Baptist University in November, Hannah Claire Houghaboo, Katie Fox and Sidney Ward are back from last year’s 24-8 undefeated conference, District, and Regional Championships that ended in a disappointing first-round upset in the state tournament after putting together 20 consecutive wins.
Both Williams and Haughaboo are returning starters from a year ago along with all-state performer junior Bethany Dillard. Sharp-shooting sophomore Ava Knoedl gives the Lady Mustangs 4 returning starters going into the season with a host of Lady Mustangs, including seniors Katie Fox and Sidney Ward, Junior Sadie Almond and sophomores Reece Shepard, Brooke Knoedl, and Stella Smith competing for the 5th starting spot and playing time off the bench.
The Lady Mustangs will put a 50 game conference win streak on the line in December against a much-improved conference.
This year’s edition of Lady Mustangs will be fun to watch and may best the best overall shooting team I’ve ever put on the floor, so there should be some fun nights on Mustang Mountain. Make plans to come out and cheer on the Mustangs!
