NHS didn’t walk away with the title at the tournament in Bartlesville, but the Tigers (1-5) did get some valuable experience for their young squad. That included freshman Bethany Franks, who turned in the best stretch of her young career by averaging 20 points through three games as she helped to lead the Tigers to their first win of the season.
The rest of the season will kick into high gear for all four teams next week. The NHS and North boys will be at the McGuinness tournament beginning on Thursday, while the NHS girls travel to Westmoore on the same day to compete in a tournament. The North girls have the longest wait, and won’t take the floor until a Jan. 14 games against Moore.
