Girl's Summer Hoops

After misreading the schedule, and showing up at the Arnold Rec Center at 9:45 this morning, only to learn that the 9:45 game was played yesterday. . . I was given a reprieve with an email from Coach Sutterer, informing me that the Pioneers were playing today at 12:30pm at Fox High School.  I hurried over and took in the game pitting the Pioneers against a rather tall Sullivan team.  It was a 1 point game at the half, and the Pioneers prevailed and did a nice job of running out the clock at the end of the game.  

The Pioneers will be fun to watch this year!  Led offensively by the lethal guard combo of Lianna Doty and Dajae Williams, the Pioneers are playing a pesky, attacking defense and looking to get out and run.  It's a tough style to play in the summer, when you play 4 to 5 games in a single day, but there's no better time to get after it and push yourself and your teammates.  

It's good to see our teams working hard over the summer to improve and prepare themselves to compete for championships.  The harder you work, the harder it is to give in when things get tough.  Keep up the good work, ladies!!

Just got word that the Pioneers beat Jeff City by 14 in the semi-final, and lost an overtime thriller to Farmington in the Championship.  Way to go, Pioneers!
