After a week of two losses, the McNary High School girls varsity basketball team rebounded to pick up two Central Valley Conference wins.
The Lady Celts were third in the league with a record of 5-3 headed into the final week of CVC competition. After a scheduled game with McKay High School Tuesday, Feb. 5, McNary was slated to finish the regular season with a match-up against West Salem High School Friday, Feb. 8.
“I think if we play as hard as we all know we can, and go as hard as we can on defense, we’ll stay right there with (the Titans) and make it tough on them,” said Celt Ashlee Koenig.
A win in the game could be a season-changer for the Celtics, and a feather in the cap for Head Coach Paul Pickerell, who left his role as an assistant coach in the Titan program to take the reins at McNary.
