Jags’ backcourt key to playoffs

Southmoore girls to host regional tourney

MOORE — When the Westmoore girls basketball team takes the court Thursday, it will be one of the youngest teams in the 6A postseason. With few seniors on the entire team, it will be a day of first for many of the players.

That includes the Jaguars (8-13) backcourt tandem of Ashley Gomez and Sydney Chastain. The pair of freshman guards will be helping to lead the team when they face No. 10 Putnam City (15-8) in the first round of the regional tournament at PCO.

For the most part we are looking good and we continue to get better and better each day,” Westmoore coach Andrea Guziec said. “We’ve got to take care of the basketball and give ourselves a chance to get good shots and score offensively and to set up defensively each possession.”

Even though it will be their first taste of the postseason action, Westmoore coach Andria Guziec has had complete faith in their ability to handle the big moment since the start of the season.

“They have never given up, regardless of how tough a game has been or if they are struggling personally,” Guziec said. “That is really the best thing I could ask for. They both have asked to take films home so they can watch and learn…even more than we are able to do together as a team. They love to win and try hard every day to get better to help their team do just that.”

Chastain and Gomez have been starters since the first game. As they have progressed, so has the team.

“It really was surprising,” Gomez said. “I was just expecting to click as a team. We’ve been doing that lately. It has gone really well for us.”

Chastain leads the team in scoring at 7.5 points a game. Gomez is right behind her with a 6.8 average. Fellow freshman Kaci Richardson is also averaging around 6 points a game.
