Junior A Dynos girls win silver at home tourney
The Dynos Junior A girls basketball team won two out of three of their games to win silver at their home tournament.
The Dynos invited Linden, Hanna and Prairie Christian Academy (PCA) to play in a round robin tournament last weekend. Coach Elesha Wright is happy with the team’s progress.
The Dynos started their tournament versus PCA and walked off the court with a 22-19 win.
They faced a tough Dr. Elliott School of Linden, and fell by three points .
In their final game, they faced a perennially strong Hanna Hawks team and eked out a 35- 34 character win.
“It was a real nail biter,” said Wright. “The girls played pretty well, I’m very proud of them, it was a nice way to end the tournament.”
This was enough to win second place. Coach Wright is happy with the effort the team is making. She says the team has made strides in making better passes and moving the ball quickly, opening up easy baskets.
“They are starting to gel now which is great,” she said, as the team heads down the stretch.
She says the team has a tournament at PCA this coming weekend and they head to zones at the beginning of March.
Gabby Thomson goes up for two points versus PCA last Friday afternoon. The Dynos won silver at their home tournament last weekend and are gelling as a team as they head into the final stretch of the season.
