Veteran Lake City Squad Anxious to Get Season Underway
LAKE CITY – When the high school girls basketball season eventually tips off, Lake City will once again be a team to watch.
The Trojans return five players and three starters from last year’s squad that went 20-2 and 16-0 in the Highland Conference.
While fall and winter high school sports are currently on hold following the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services three-week epidemic order, the Trojans did get their first week of practice in and a game plan developed.
“We’re putting in a lot of new things offensively and defensively to utilize the girls that we have this year, mainly Olivia Bellows,” Lake City coach Bill Tisron said. “I thought we had a good week of practice. The first two days were slow and kind of a feeling out process with the new girls on the team getting them adjusted. But I thought the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday practices were some of our better practices over the last few years.”
With an 11 players suiting up for Lake City, the Trojans will have one of their deepest roster in recent years when they eventually tip off a new season.
