Squirrels off to a scorching start

(WDAY Sports) - Maybe the third time will be the charm for the Central Cass girl’s basketball team.

The Squirrels are off to a scorching 13-1 start, boosted by a defense that's allowing just over 30 points a game. They've lost in the last two region championships to Hankinson, but think this could be their breakthrough year.

“We definitely were unexpected of what we had coming this year since we lost four seniors, but we put a good group of girls together and we've really improved throughout the season so far. We've got some young girls who are really stepping it up on this team.”

“Team defense has really stood out this season. We play good help side and we talk a lot on defense so I'd say the defensive end of the court is what I've really been the most happy with.”

The only loss was to 8-1 Hankinson.
