Isn’t it a great year to be a Lady Eagle with only two months into the season, the Ruskin Lady Eagles have had a great season.

The players were hyped and eager to jump off the season.

“I’m just ready to get the show on the road, ready to get the season started,” senior Dajionne Brown said.

The home opener against Belton High School was a nail biting game 39-36. In the game the Lady Eagles showed improvement not only as individuals but also as a team. Even though they lost that wasn’t going to stop the Lady Eagles going into attack mode for the rest of the season.

“Play hard and not give up and take every lose and learn from it,” junior Andrea Brown said.

The girls Varsity Basketball team had an opportunity to play in conference against Oak Park and won 50-42.

“I was excited because we lost bad last year, you know and I had a grudge from last year so we came and did what we did,” junior Tamya Mccray said.

The Lady Eagles learned that playing as individuals might not always make a win but playing together might get them to where they need to be.

“I noticed that we are more focused, we play more together,” junior Andrea Brown said. “We still have our problems but it’s better than the past years.”

The Lady Eagles are are coming harder than ever this season but together. This is a great season to be a Lady Eagle.
