Scrapperette basketball fans got an early look at the junior high and high school teams Oct. 25 during the annual Orange and Black Scrimmage at Scrapper Arena.

“It was good to get out and play,” Coach Ron Alexander said of his senior high Scrapperettes. “We played hard and got after it.”

The Scrapperettes were “winded a little. We’re not quite in shape. We had 1 hurt, but she’ll be okay,” Alexander said.

The Scrapperettes shot well, according to Alexander.

For the night, “Alyssa Harrison and Kaylea Carver had a good game. Madi Miller shot well the second half. She gets after it. Kendall Kirchhoff had a good night until she was hurt,” Alexander said.

The Scrapperettes will open the season Tuesday, Nov. 8, at the Ouachita Baptist University Lady Tiger Tip-Off Classic.

They will play Prescott at 8:30 p.m. at Bill Vining Arena in the Sturgis Center. The winner will play Bismarck or Fordyce Nov. 9. The tournament finals will be played Nov. 10.

Junior high

The junior high Scrapperettes “did well,” Coach Laura Kidd said. “They played good team ball.”

The Scrapperettes are “getting some jitters out of the way. We have room for improvement.”

With 16 girls on the roster, the junior Scrapperettes enter the season with “high expectations,” Kidd said.

The roster includes 8 eighth graders and 8 ninth graders.

“We’re very excited about the season. We have a good group of girls with great attitudes. They’re fun to work with. A lot of kids will get to play,” according to Kidd. The season opens Thursday, Nov. 10, at Scrapper Arena against De Queen.
