Cache-Elgin highlights week’s schedule
It's time for the next chapter of the rivalry to be written.
Cache and Elgin meet Tuesday night on the hardwood for the first time this season, with the rivalry sure to bring out the best in both teams.
When the Lady Bulldogs (4-8) and No. 5 Lady Owls (9-1) tip at 6:30 p.m. in Cache, with the boys to follow, there's no telling how this chapter will unfold.
"All bets are off," Cache girls coach Kerry White said. "It's one of those games where I don't know if anybody knows what's going to happen, but everybody is gonna show up ready to play hard and prove what they're all about."
Cache went 1-2 in the Chickasha Tournament over the weekend, defeating Chickasha, before falling to a tough Yukon squad and coming up five points short in a back-and-forth battle with Altus.
"The Chickasha Tournament was good for us because we were able to gain a little confidence," White said. "We realize we still have to be better versions of ourselves, but overall we're moving in the right direction."
A lot of that has to do with different Bulldogs stepping up in different games. Go-to scorer Ashley Turner has been the most consistent, Kyla Bonnarens has been solid and Kayla Niedo has chipped in some big points, White said.
"Ava Swanson has been providing a spark and doing the little things and the dirty work for our team," White said. "It's been something we've really needed."
Still, it's been tough to get all of Cache's weapons going simultaneously. If they can fire on all cylinders together Tuesday, watch out.
