Plenty of surprises for area girls basketball teams

DUNCAN — With the holiday break comes a time for reflection on the first half of the season for area high school basketball teams.

For many of the Stephens County squads, the 2012-13 season has provided pleasant surprises thus far, while others have found the road tough early on.

5A

DUNCAN

Just two games into the season, the Duncan Lady Demons were sitting pretty at a nice 1-1 record under first-year head coach Aaron Minor.

But, then the growing pains hit and the Lady Demons have found visits to the win column few and far between heading into the holiday break.

However, one of the bright spots this season has been the emergence of senior point guard Jamie Carberry who has been turning in solid performances in multiple games for the Lady Demons.

Rainy Sanford has shown to be one of the solid shooters for Duncan, while Kortney Brown will be relied upon to help turn the season around for DHS after Christmas.

Dec. 27-29 will see the Lady Demons participate in the Chisholm Trail Holiday Shootout at Duncan High School, before hosting Ada on Jan. 4.

3A

COMANCHE

For the Comanche Lady Indians (2-5), it’s been an up and down first half. After opening the season with a victory over Wilson, CHS has managed to win just once in its last six contests.

“There’s aspects of the game where we have come real far,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said. “Offensively Baylee (Morgan) and Payge (Graham) have found their way for us. Defensively, it’s taken time for us to adjust. But, the break will allow us to work and fix things were having trouble with.”

One thing the Lady Indians will be hoping for after the break is the return of sophomore Alexis Duran, who suffered a knee injury against Bray-Doyle.

“Alexis is a player that gives us a lot of energy,” Hushbeck said. “She’s a key part of helping defend when we’re in our press. If we can get her more playing time it will be very important to her development as a player.”

Marlow (Jan. 5) and Madill (Jan. 8) will visit Tommy D. Weast Gymnasium to start the 2013 home slate for the Lady Indians. CHS will then travel to Lone Grove for the Lone Grove tournament beginning on Jan. 10.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
