The Wampus Cats lost 29-51 to Genesis Prep in their season opener on Tuesday.
“We haven’t really had a lot of numbers,” coach Jordan Adams said of the team. “We’ve also had a bunch of injuries the last couple years.”
The game started off chaotic with seven personal fouls for the Lady Cats and six for Genesis Prep. At the end of the first half Clark Fork was down 13-28.
“We lost both games to Genesis Prep last year,” Adams said before the game.
But it seems the Lady Cats have a deep bench this year. Juniors Lilly Reuter and Eloise Shelton have been varsity players since they were freshman and will be a big help to Clark Fork.
Sophomore, Hannah Thompson, who scored 11 points last night for the Lady Cats, showed that she’ll also be a force to be reckoned with.
“We’re strong this year,” said Adams.
The Clark Fork girls team play at home again tonight against Bonners Ferry.
