Douglas County competed in the Parkview Thanksgiving Tournament on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. The Lady Tigers lost to Mays, Parkview and Forest Park.
“We played some very good competition and that will help us in the long run but right now we do not have a lot of confidence,” said DC coach Chet Forsh.
The Lady Tigers took on Mays Tuesday afternoon, falling 56-41. Douglas County trailed 11-6 after the first period, 19-17 at the half and 34-29 after the third period.
“I was very disappointed,” Forsh said. “We had the ball , down by two in the third quarter, and we turned it over. We stayed close most of the third but were scrambling.”
Arsula Clark led the team with nine points.
Taking on Parkview Monday, the Lady Tigers fell, 51-44. They trailed 18-8 after the first period and 35-21 at the break. They were down 54-34 after the third period.
Santasia Faust led the team with 17 points. Amira Atwater followed with nine.
“We had 38 turnovers and shot less than 25 percent from the field,” Forsh said. “We did not shoot the ball well at all.”
The DC girls lost to Forest Park in the first round of the Thanksgiving Tourney on Saturday. DC trailed 15-11 after the first period and 27-20 at the break. They were down 36-29 after the third period before eventually falling, 55-40.
Faust led the team with 11 points. Clark followed with 10 and Atwater netted eight.
The team was 12-of-30 from the free throw line.
“That alone could have given us the game,” Forsh said.
Faust was named to the All-Tournament Team.
