Lady Tigers basketball are both hungry and confident as they put in summer work

The Ripley girls basketball program competed in summer league action over the month of June.

If their intensity level during the summer is foreshadowing the type of effort they will bring to the court next season, their opponents are in for a battle every second of every game.

After playing for the state championship 2 of the last 3 seasons and returning all except one starter from last year, coach Steve Willey has a good indication of the type of team he has.

“I’m confident in my team. We just have to keep working, keep getting better between now and the season,” Willey said after one of his teams summer games at Myrtle.

The Lady Tigers will lean heavily on 4 year starters Summer Kirkman, Amelya Hatch and Siarra Jackson this upcoming season.
