Title stays at Westmoore

(Continued)

MOORE —

Boyland also learned more about his Jaguars. Especially when it was forced to comeback to earn a hard fought championship.

“We played with a lot of heart and determination,” Boyland said. “Even when we were down, the team continued not to give up. I was impressed with the way our team was coachable. They executed our game plan more and more as the tournament went on. I think they learned that they can play with anyone who we face.   Even though our experience level is low, they are understanding now that every point matters.”

Junior Kelsey M. Taylor and senior Anna Fitzpatrick earned All-Tournament team selections. The Jags also got strong play from Keely Waters and Cara Williamson played well.

 Westmoore was back on the court Tuesday when it hosted Norman North. It will travel to Mustang Thursday to face the Bronchos again after playing them during the Invitational. MHS will be at Choctaw Thursday.

Yet, with school back in, coaches are just looking for their players to find their normal routine now.

“We practice in the evenings so they will have study hall during sixth hour,” Boyland said. “That is not normal for most programs but it is teaching the team to be flexible and adapt to change. This will help them on the court. We have two difficult matches this week and the team is excited to see how they do.”
