The Bells tournament did not go as planned for the women’s basketball team.

The Lady Cats lost all four games over Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, Nov. 18, Sulphur Springs took on Howe for their first game of the Bells tourney. Howe won a close one 37-33.

In the Lady Cats second game and final game on the day, Coach Erica Delley’s squad were reunited with former head coach Brittney Tisdell and her Pantherettes. North Lamar cruised by Sulphur Springs 50-9.

The women’s basketball team had the chance to put their 0-2 day behind them in day two of the tournament on Friday, but lost another tough one to Alvord 45-24. The Lady Cats fought hard in their fourth game, but it proved to be their last as they lost another close one, this time to Leonard 37-34.

“We had to readjust the varsity roster because of injuries [and other things],” Coach Erica Delley said. “Now we are young and learning how to play with each other.”

The women’s basketball coach said these games are crucial in their development. She said the goal is to be ready by district.

“Over the last few games, we have increased our scoring,” Coach Delley said, and “as we get healthy we are looking to take it to another level.”

The 0-4 Bells tournament puts the Lady Cats basketball team’s record at 0-7.

Next up, Sulphur Springs will have two games before Thanksgiving;

  • on Monday, Nov. 22 at Mineola at 1 P.M. and
  • Tuesday, Nov. 23 versus Liberty Eylau at 12:45 P.M.
