Sporting a 4-1 region record, the Lady Trojans have picked up region wins over Ben Lomond (66-24), Logan (46-33), Ridgeline (57-40) and Bear River (55-42) so far this season. Their only loss came at home last Thursday to Juan Diego 65-72. Behind senior Brookelyn Hurlbut and a talented junior class, Morgan has been systematically wearing down its opponents with tough defense, good shooting and great movement on offense.
Coach Kade Morrell remarked, “I can’t believe how fast this season is going. We are halfway through region play. At this point the girls are in control of their own destiny. They have worked hard and if they continue to play well and stick together, they will continue to do well. We are working towards our goal of earning the home playoff game and I am really proud of the girls. The next few weeks will have a lot of away games and will have to be a really tough team on the road.”
Morgan played at Bear River Tuesday and at home against Ben Lomond on Thursday, January 26. After games at Logan, Juan Diego, and Ridgeline, the Lady Trojans will play their final game of the regular season at home against Bear River on February 9.
