Evart girls looking to have more success

EVART  — It’s district week for the Evart girls varsity Wildcats, who simply want to play their best basketball right now.

Recently, the Wildcats were tied 15-15 at halftime with Marion but allowed 35 points in the second half and lost the game.

“We just fell apart and weren’t talking on defense or offense,” Courtney Lang said. “We’re focused on everyone getting on the same page.”

Lang, a junior, is in her first varsity season. She’s been on the court to help out the Wildcats in whatever way possible. She looks at defense as among her main strengths.

The Wildcats have had some strong games, especially in a narrow loss to Manton. But they haven’t been able to nail down that first win.

“It gets frustrating at times,” she said. “We have to go out there, play and will do what we can and hopefully come out with a win.”

Lang said she’s improved throughout the season on both ends of the ball.

A scheduled home game Friday against McBain was snowed out and won’t be made up.

This week, Evart travels to Beal City to participate in the Class C girls basketball district tournament.
