HARLEM — The Harlem girls basketball team had one of its best seasons in recent memory last year, winning the Northern B divisional tournament and heading to state as the No. 1 seed. But the Wildcats lost out in two games, finishing a stellar season with a bitter end.

After dismantling Rocky Boy and Cut Bank last week, Harlem sits at 13-1 this season, looking like one of the best teams in the North again. Senior guard L'Tia Lawrence said her team has the synergy to get back to state and possibly take the next step.

“Our goal is to get back to the state level and go farther than we did last year. That’s what we’re working for and striving for," Lawrence said. "I believe in my team and we have a lot of potential to be at that level again. Everybody has their own job, and it all just fits together like a puzzle. If one person wasn’t here, it wouldn’t be as strong.”
