The Lady Bulldogs enter Christmas break 4-2 overall, 1-1 in conference.
Douglas’ basketball coach Clint Hill said he’s pleased with how his team is playing right now and in fact, they have a better record at this point this year, than they did at this point last year.
The coach said his team, despite being so young, is really stepping up to the challenge and, as long as his players continue to listen to the coaches and execute the way they’re asked to, they should be okay.
