MINERAL WELLS —
Shelstead also got to play many players – ladies who have embraced their respective roles and who have also played key roles in the 17 wins.
“Everyone got to play a lot of minutes, and that was the best thing about the win,” Shelstead said. “The kids are also doing all of the little things I ask, and as a coach that is fun for me.”
The Lady Rams are tied for first place with Kennedale and today’s opponent, Lake Worth. With Kennedale ranked No. 2 in Class 3A and the Ladycats facing Fort Worth Diamond Hill, it is likely 6-3A will have two teams tied for first place after today’s action.
Lake Worth is coming off a 37-22 win over Diamond Hill and is also looking to stay unbeaten in district play. In other district action on Friday, Kennedale defeated Springtown, 86-16.
“We wanted to start district off strong and we feel we did that,” Ed Shelstead said.
Now the Lady Rams will have a different challenge in not only Lake Worth and Diamond Hill – their next two opponents – but also the challenge of not looking ahead to a Jan. 15 game at Springtown followed by a Jan. 18 home game against Kennedale.
