The Winfield girls basketball team have faced a bit of a rocky start to their season, but showed big signs of improvement on Wednesday, Dec. 4 against North Tech.

The Warriors lost the game but it was only by one point, with scores of 42-41.

Winfield led at large portions of the game. The first quarter ended with the Warriors leading 16-5 and the score at half time was 29-21 in favor of Winfield.

“We had a fast start with more pressure on the defensive end. [We] led 16-5 after the first quarter. The girls played faster with more confidence, and played together,” Winfield Head Coach Tim Smith said. 

The Warriors are a very young team and looking to build some experience in young players.

“We started three freshmen, so as the team gains experience, confidence and results will improve,” Smith said. Junior Chloe Kaimann led the Warriors in scoring with 13 points, followed by Freshman Elena Parr who had eight points and 11 rebounds.
