When people see a team lose, they tend to pass them by. The Mansfield 7th Grade Lady Tigers are NOT one of those teams you want to do that to. As they are still transferring from little league to 7th-grade basketball, they are learning many new styles. They are also gaining the most important factor of all. Experience. The 7th Grade Lady Tigers may have fallen to Charleston 21-13 on Thursday, January 16th, but they learned some important mistakes from the tough loss which are being tended to at this moment. Not by coach, Joshua Bryan. But by the players who are determined to be the next picture on the wall of the Tigers gymnasium.
Shelbie Fuller played like a shark after prey as she swam the court delivering Tiger dominance ending the night with eight points, three rebounds, and one steal. Ambria Whittaker offered zero rest for Charleston as she earned three points along with six rebounds, and two steals. Maylei Rogers outperformed almost every “Gold” player on the court with her high speeds and leadership gaining her three rebounds and two points.
And rounding out the Lady Tigers rockin’ roster was Azlynn Nelson, Presley Curry, and Trinity Triska with a combined four rebounds and three steals. Next up for the 7th Grade Lady Tigers, it’s off to Cedarville to again try their hand at the Cedarville Lady Pirates on Monday, January 20th starting at 4:30 p.m.
