Girls’ team disappoints coach

by Jen Watkins, Of the Record staff

Girls’ basketball coach Sam White wasn’t ready to talk about the girls’ game against Wasatch where the Miners lost 62-32 at home on Friday, Jan. 15. After having 11 turnovers and not scoring a single point there were four shot attempts with three air balls in the first quarter, White was struggling to find something positive to say about the game.

"(We) played better in the second half, but still nothing special," he said. "I apologize to anyone who came. This was not an accurate portrayal of Park City girls’ basketball."

Despite a struggling offense, the Miners were able to pick it up the defensive end to keep the Wasps from increasing the score gap.

"Defense and rebounding was the only thing that kept (Wasatch) from scoring 100," White said.

Guard Laurel Kasel led the team with 18 points.

The Miners played Carbon on Tuesday, Jan. 19. Results were not available at press time. White said on Monday that he felt the girls would be more prepared to play Carbon than they were to face Wasatch. They travel to Union on Friday, Jan. 22.
