The Corrigan-Camden Lady Dogs could not match their first-period output over the final three quarters of the game, dropping a 63-9 contest to West Sabine Tuesday.

The Lady Dogs were able to score five in the first quarter, but failed to put together consistent offense from there. West Sabine held a 10-point margin after one, and led 29-6 at the half.

“I think we are hustling a lot harder and we still need to work on turning the ball over too much,” Corrigan coach Jack Arneson said. “There are too many turnovers; we just need to be more patient on offense. It is tough in the first year and I got here kind of late in the summer. The real growth is going to be made in the offseason. Usually by year two or three, things start rolling and the girls get a little more comfortable with me, and I learn how things go around here scheduling-wise. We’ve got to get them in the gym more, because that is really what they need.”

Anyea Wyatt, Faith Menifee, Noretta Sweats and Ava Burks all contributed in the scoring column for the Lady Dogs.

Arneson, in his first year at Corrigan, said he wants to build an offseason program for the girls, where they can work through the late spring and summer to be better prepared for the future. However, he has also not given up on making improvements now with the season in progress.

“The athleticism is there, we just need to work on basketball IQ,” the coach said. “The more they can watch and get excited about it like they do volleyball – because they play volleyball more and they are around it more. We just have to build that up.”

The girls host Grapeland Friday night, then travel to Colmesneil Tuesday.
