Blough knows there will be challenges early for a team that hasn’t even scrimmaged since before Thanksgiving, but he’s also confident he has the right players to figure it out.
“It helps when your two best players are also your two hardest workers,” he said. “That sets a great example for the younger girls on the team.”
And the T-Wolves will find out early how far they’ve come since the summer. If they win today’s game with PC North, they’ll likely meet Class 5A’s second-ranked team in Deer Creek on Friday.
Kuestersteffen said the team is ready. With the depth the T-Wolves look to have, she said practices have been intense and the competition has helped North improve.
“As one of the only players back who has a lot of varsity experience, I’ve done my best to make it a game-like situation in practice,” she said. “We’re trying to make it to state this year and get better every day. We’re not going to be satisfied until then. We’re going to keep working so we don’t plateau and instead we keep climbing and peak at the right time.”
