SEMINOLE â€” The Lady Steers (3-3) fell short on the road Tuesday against the Seminole Lady Indians, losing 30-24 despite a strong defensive showing.
BSHS Head Coach Mike Warren is focused on executing offensively before district play begins.
â€śWe played really well on defense,â€ť Warren said. â€śWe could not get going offensively. (Seinole) ran zone on us and we couldn't hit our outside shots.â€ť
Much of the reason for the Lady Steers' opponents using a zone defense attack is due to the scoring threat of Yaneira Tuitt.
