Already down 0-2 on the new season, the Lady Tigers are hoping to add a little greatness to the basketball program.
Head Coach Ashley Sustaita said the team is working as a program to change effort and attitudes, along with basketball skills and knowledge, with the goal of changing Trinity basketball to a district competitor through tough defense and even tougher mindset.
On Nov. 7, Sustaita said they battled with Anahuac and lost only by 10.
“Everyone played well and showed some major guts and courage,” she said. “The gym environment was electric, and the kids fought until the final horn.”
On Friday night, Trinity played Cushing and did not show up well, she said.
“We showed a lot of old habits that we are working to change and improve,” Sustaita said
