The McMullen County Cowgirls are excited to get the season underway with Head Coach Tony Taylor returning for his second season at the helm of the Cowgirls.
McMullen finished as the Area Champs last season and are hoping to keep the title this 2012-2013 season. The Cowgirls will return plenty of familiar faces but will also welcome in quite a bit of new faces.
Coach Taylor returns to lead the Cowgirls, as he guided them to a 26-6 overall record last season and a 9-1 district record which claimed Area Champs. Coach Tony Taylor has started his coaching session at McMullen with a bang and will hopefully continue to dominate with his team.
Who is back for the Cowgirls? The McMullen County Cowgirls will return six experienced players to the court. They welcome back the following athletes: Destinee Thomas-Sr-Post, Jasmyn Smith-Sr-Guard, Danielle Dawson-Jr-Guard, Heather Gillin-Jr-Guard, Hailey Ruiz-Soph-Guard and Mariah Mesa-Soph-Guard.
Looking Forward- This season will be a little bit tougher for the Cowgirls as they face different competition.
Our team strength this season will be our height and continuity. One area we will struggle with will be our young backups and depth, stated Coach Tony Taylor.
Offensively the Cowgirls will run a hi/ lo offense and will run a man to man defense. The Cowgirls opened up their season with games against Victoria Christian Academy and Pettus.
Schedule Outlook- The Cowgirls opened their season with a road trip to Nordheim on Tuesday, November 13th.
