A combination of cold shooting and poor ball-handling proved to be too much for the Trinity Lutheran girls basketball team to overcome during Saturday afternoon’s Class A West Washington Regional game against Northeast Dubois.
The Cougars only made 11 of 37 field-goal attempts and committed 18 turnovers in losing 44-30 to the fifth-ranked Jeeps.
“You hate to go back and say it, but sometimes when you’re here for the first time, the kids got awestruck by the bright lights and big crowd.” Cougars coach Mike Lang said.
Trinity was playing in its first regional after winning the Springs Valley Sectional the week before.
“You’ve got to look at the basket before you put the ball in the basket, and that’s one thing we didn’t do,” Lang said.
