Charlo

The Charlo Lady Vikings came out a bit cold in their first game of the year during the Western CKootenai College, losing to the Clark Fork Lady Mountain Cats by just three points.

“They need to do a better job with the ball,” Coach Bret Thompson said. “They had too many turnovers; some was their press, some was just us.”

The team — a mix of a couple of seniors, one junior, four or five sophomores and a freshman — is just “playing scared” right now, Thompson said. “They’ll get it figured out, and then we’ll have fun.”

Two Eagle River School The Lady Eagles, described as a “run and gun” team, are looking to make some noise this season. With eight seniors on the 13-gal roster, Coach Laura Tenas thinks it will be a fun year. This is Tenas’ first year as head coach.
