In four of the last six years, the Ardmore Lady Tigers have made it to the final week of the season. They are searching for their first state title since 1993, and this very well could be the team to do it.
They have a very good combination of tough defense, and scoring ability. In 2019, the Lady Tigers fell in the State Quarterfinals, but have their sights set on taking it all the way this year.
"I'm excited," said Ardmore post Tiona Cohee. "I feel like since last year didn't go the way we wanted it to go, I feel like we were given this opportunity to finish what we started."
"It's really just an indescribable feeling," said Ardmore post Reagan McCurley. "Last year we didn't get the outcome that we wanted, this year I feel like we have it. We're ready, we've been working really hard for this, so we're excited."
"It takes all of us," said Ardmore head coach Debra Manley. "From every person, no matter what their role is, how big or small, it takes every single kid we have and every coach we have on the staff to make us go."
"It takes everybody. Not just one of us is the all star of the team, we're all athletes," said Ardmore point guard Shakira Smith. "If one of us is off, another one is on. It takes the whole group."
Ardmore will play Will Rogers at Owasso on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled for 3:30
