Lady Cougars wrap up season

From page A7 | February 13, 2013 |

El Dorado girls basketball closed the regular season with Monday’s 56-33 home loss to Sierra Valley Conference champion River City.

The Cougars finished 2-10 in league and 5-17 overall.

“The season was humbling and we were challenged with adversity to start but the kids always came to practice, worked hard, never gave up and bought into the game plan,” El Dorado coach Pat Winter said.  “I’m proud of them for what they were able to do. Physically we hung in there and defensively for the most part we did a good job.”

The Raiders’ trapping pressure forced Cougar turnovers Monday. When El Dorado did break the press, River City center Aliyah Brantley awaited to block a half-dozen first-half shots.

Though the effort was there for the Cougars, the first-place Raiders turned turnovers into baskets and hit numerous shots in the 12-15 foot range. El Dorado had good efforts from Rebecca McCauaghey, Gina Somara, Carley Fowler and Mya Leaird off the bench in the team’s final appearance of the season.

Seniors Maddie Zuber and Shelby Ganzert combined for nine points in their last game as teammates.

“Our season obviously went a little different than in past years but I’m proud of the attitude of the team. When we knew the season wouldn’t turn out the way we wanted, everyone still worked hard and that’s not easy to do under those circumstances,” Zuber said.

Hannah Dixon scored nine points to lead the Cougars; Ganzert had five; Zuber, Kylie Haverson and Leaird had four apiece; McCauaghey and Sabrina Tate two each; and Fowler a free throw.

Note: El Dorado senior Raeven Barrett sang the National Anthem, played flute in the school band and is a Ms. Teen El Dorado winner.
