The Chester County Eaglettes sit comfortably at 3-2 as of the beginning of this week.
On Tuesday, the Eagles played their first district game against Riverside. (Results unavailable at printing).
Last week the Eaglettes had some tough losses against Humboldt and the University School of Jackson (USJ). They fell to Humboldt 59-45 and fell to USJ 62-33.
“Tuesday (the game against Humboldt) we gave good effort, but we weren’t really smart,” Head Coach Lee Pipkin said. “We came out hot, but it’s like we ran out of gas.”
Then the USJ game loss was due to the girls’ mentality being absent during the game Pipkin said.
“The girls just came in with no intensity. We just did not play smart and we weren’t getting our shots,” she said.
The Jackson Christian game was one full of success on Friday Dec. 6.
The Eaglettes were beating the JCS Lady Eagles 25-7 at the end of the half and kept them at single digits.
Then they just continued to dominate throughout the game and won 48-27.
“We came out and played really hard,” she said.
Pipkin praised the defense of that game.
“When you hold a team to seven points in the first half, single digits, that’s good defense,” she said.
Currently, the Eagles are playing without one of their starters, Mia Hurst, due to an injury, and Pipkin said players are going to have to step up while she is out.
