Lady Cats host high school summer league action
A week after hosting junior high teams from across Northwest Oklahoma, Seiling welcomed high school teams to town to compete in their annual summer league. Once again, the Lady Cats split into two squads for the event, as teams from Fairview, Shattuck, Woodward, Cheyenne, Calumet, Arnett and Alva also competed.
Over the past four years, the Lady Cats high school teams have looked quite similar, thanks to a 2019 class of girls that racked up 128 wins during their careers. Now, Seiling has a new group of faces stepping into the starting lineup, and the summer league offered a valuable opportunity for them to get accustomed to their new roles.
“It’s going to be different,” explained Coach Hamar.” For one, we don’t have the experience that we had with those older girls that graduated. It may be a slightly different style of play with this group but not much. That’s why it’s important to get these games in over the summer. We are looking to girls like Brya Nyberg and Kathryn Rogers to step up because they are our seniors and they have the most experience. We’ve also got some young girls that can lead. Kylie Gore got some important experience in the playoffs and even in the State Tournament. Just because you aren’t a senior doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader. We lost five seniors, so a lot of these girls may have to step up quick.”
