Chinook Girls’ Basketball Starts Divisional Tournament

The last time Chinook High’s girls’ basketball team took the floor was almost two weeks ago. The result was unfamiliar as the Lady Beeters dropped their first game of the season in the District 1B championship game to Fairfield. Regardless, the team is still in prime position to get to its next goal, which is to be the No. 1 seed out of the Northern ‘B’ with a championship. Lady Beeters coach Mike Seymour told New Media Broadcasters the team has worked on finding its identity again, which is on the defensive end.

“We had a week and a half, about eight practices where we went back to identifying what we are as a team and that’s defense,” Seymour said. “I felt like we needed to go back to defensive intensity, shooting the basketball in transition, and just flat out getting after it.”

Chinook will start its divisional run tonight around 6pm and face Fairview in the first round. Seymour said the opponent has been scouted going all the way back to last summer and said his team is just grateful for another chance to play basketball.

“We saw them this summer in Glendive, so we have a fairly decent idea of what they have and what they do,” Seymour said. “They’re well coached by Morgan Mason, a former (MSU-Northern) Skylight.”

“We’re just excited to have this opportunity,” Seymour continued.

Listen to Chinook and Fairview tonight around 6pm on KRYK-101.3FM and HiLineToday.com. Winner plays around 7:30pm tomorrow and loser plays around 4:30pm tomorrow.
