On January 3, for their first game of the new year, the Waldron Lady Bulldogs hosted the Cossatot Lady Eagles. With the Lady Eagles being 11-5 in total season play and undefeated 4-0 in conference, the Lady Bulldogs came into the game ready to engage in some smash-mouth basketball because they knew that was the kind of game that the Lady Eagles were bringing to the court.

“I am so proud of the girls for not giving up,” exclaims Coach Josh Atchley. “We found ourselves down five points with just under a minute left in the game and we managed to go on an 8-0 run to successfully win the match 42-39.” The MVP of the game was junior, Jessica Ozuna. With time winding down to 30 seconds and Waldron behind, Ozuna came out of the shadows with a flawless 3-point bucket, putting the team back on top. She finished the game with a total of six points.

“Sophomore, Hailey Stidman, carried the Lady Bulldogs offensively early and finished with 19 points. Rheagan Sanford iced the game at the free-throw line and Chelsea Stidman and Kadance Espinoza both came up with big steals to seal the win.” Sanford and Stidman each ended the match with six points while Molly Richmond netted four and Espinoza grabbed one.

Up next for the (7-8) Waldron Lady Bulldogs will be a huge at-home conference game on Tuesday, January 7 against the (6-7) Cedarville Lady Pirates. Both teams currently sit evenly matched 1-1 in conference play. Last season, Waldron and Cedarville split the columns with the Lady Pirates first taking a 60-24 win followed by the Lady Bulldogs returning the favor in their second match-up with a 37-35 victory. Since the beginning of basketball season, the Waldron Lady Bulldogs “Epic Eight” have proven that there’s really not much that they cant accomplish. So don’t expect any neeeeerves from these girrrrls when the Lady Pirates sail into town.
