This weekend the women’s basketball team will be traveling to Sherman, Texas to face the Austin College Roos followed by a trip to Louisiana to play Centenary College. These will be the Pirates first two conference games. The Pirates currently have a record of 3-2.
On November 16 and 17 the Bucs played two games at home against Mary Hardin-Baylor and Texas Lutheran. They won both games by more than ten points.
“Starting out with this first few wins at home was a good way to set the bar high and we want to continue to win,” Junior Lauren Elliott, who plays center for the Pirates, said.
The team traveled to San Antonio during the Thanksgiving break for the annual Trinity Thanksgiving Classic Tournament. There they won against Schreiner (56-53) but fell to Hardin-Simmons (63-62).
“If we want to reach our goal of winning Conference we need to keep up the intensity and stay focused,” Elliott said.
The Pirates will continue to play throughout winter break so keep an eye on twitter (@SUPirates) and the Southwestern Athletics website for updates!
