Rams, Lady Rams looking to get back in District 6-3A win columns today at home

MINERAL WELLS — By TONY EIERDAM

Both the Mineral Wells Lady Rams and Rams will continued District 6-3A basketball action today when the teams host Castleberry.

The Lady Rams and Lady Lions will tip off at 6:30 p.m. at the MWHS gym, and the Rams and Lions will follow at approximately 8 p.m.

The Lady Rams are coming off a respectable 67-50 loss to first-place and state-ranked No. 7 Kennedale, a loss that dropped the MWHS ladies to 3-2 in district and into third place.

Castleberry will come into the contest seeking its first district win. The Lady Rams defeated the Lady Lions, 87-18, in the district opener earlier in the month.

Lady Rams head coach Ed Shelstead began the season with four new starters in the lineup – including three ladies new to the varsity level – and looks at the second half of district play as the part of the schedule where his team can take what they have learned and put it all together.

“The best part of the second half of district play is that we are five games more mature than we were when we started district play,” Shelstead said. “Kennedy (Shelstead) and Natalie (Ragland) are in their first year on varsity, and they are much more mature.

“Based on results and history, I feel we are only going to get better.

“Our loss at Springtown (on Jan. 15) was an anomaly, but when you look at how the girls bounced back and fought tooth and nail with Kennedale (on Friday), that was huge and it is a positive sign heading into the second half of district.

“The girls have more confidence. This is old news, but we are a club that has never played together, and we have three girls who start who have never been on varsity (Kennedy Shelstead, Ragland, Bethany Allen), and look where we are.
