On Tuesday, Jan. 5, the Charlotte Trojanettes traveled to Falls City for district play. The Charlotte Trojanettes fell to the Beaverettes 46-27.

“With the closure happening I knew we were going to have to work ten times harder because we were the only team in the district not being able to play throughout the break,” said Head Coach Nicholas Lopez. “I have high expectations for this group the rest of the season and I know we will continue to get better physically and mentally.”

At the half, Falls City was beating Charlotte 26- 17. It was a good sign for the Trojanettes.

“We came out great in the first half, better than most expected,” Lopez said. “We did all the right things and played our game. In the second half, it just showed which team was more in shape.”

“Even though we took the loss, I still believe we played our best game tonight,” senior Jessalyn Sanchez said. “The way I see we played tonight, I expect big things for the rest of the season, especially when we meet up with Falls City once more.”

Sanchez had 3 points for the Trojanettes.

“We did play our best game so far. I feel like we made a lot of progress from the beginning of the season,” said Junior Mia Campos. “We still have a lot more work to do and I hope we come out on top just like last year.”

Campos had 8 points for the Trojanettes. Ariel Ramon followed with 7 points.

The Charlotte Trojanettes game against Sabinal last week was cancelled due to COVID. They traveled to La Pryor on Tuesday.
