Lady Longhorns Tip Off New Season Friday

The Dorchester High School girls basketball team is ready to inflict some damage on the court this year, as bigger things are expected from the Orange and Black Attack than in recent seasons.

A crew of more seasoned Lady Longhorns begins their new season this Friday at DHS, taking on fellow Class D-2 opponent Meridian.

The DHS girls will be lead by first-year head coach Brandon Bruha, a former DHS basketball standout himself.  Bruha is a second-year instructor at DHS and helped coach last season.

This year's team, as pictured above, includes (seated) student manager Jacee Zoubek, Makenna Bird, Bailey Velder, Clarissa Bors, Maru Ruiz, (kneeling) Zoe McKnight, Kaytee Eberhardt, Michelle Kotas, Audra Bulin, Maite Barandica, student manager Daisha Hoffman, (standing) assistant coach Kyleigh Lewis, Avery Behrens, Lydia Wells, Jessica Kalkwarf, Savannah Plonkey, Brittney Zoubek, Jacee Weber, head coach Brandon Bruha and (not pictured) Ashley Schwisow.  (Photo is courtesy of BJ Fictum.)

While the Lady Longhorns are young, the team is comprised of some experienced players, including Bailey Velder, Avery Behrens and Jacee Weber.

  2. It has been said that Behrens and Weber will not be playing in the first game due to injuries. Two starters from last year not playing in the first game will be a challenge for the young crew.

  3. Go ladies, go. You girls have some height this year!

  4. The girls can do it, have faith in them, injurys or not they will pull threw, and if they don't, its another day.

  5. The Dorchester Girls Basketball team is not made up of TWO players. There are other girls that need a chance. Who knows there could be other girls that are better we just have to wait and see.

  6. I knew some negative person would have to pipe in about the above comment. No one ever said anything about the 2 injured ladies making up the entire team. Yeesh! There is a lot of talent on the team this year. And who knows...if the 2 injured players would have played last night, they could have made the score worse than it was?
