BUTTE – The 2018-19 season for the Butte Central girls basketball team will be a bit tougher than normal.

After losing star talent such as Kloie Thatcher, the team now leans on their three seniors and loads of young players who have minimal experience in the varsity level. Class A girls basketball is shaping up to be very competitive yet again, so the Maroons will have to take things in stride and build upon every learning opportunity this season.

“Their ability to work hard, they’re relentless, they’re going to be in great shape,” head coach Meg Murphy said. “I see it more as they have a lot of room to grow, and sometimes when you have good teams you don’t see a lot of growth in kids as you do with kids who haven’t played a ton.”

“I think we’ll be better than people expect,” senior guard Tricia Joyce said. “If we can work together, we’ll accomplish some good things. What I’ve seen so far is, we’re a hard-working group who comes in everyday, works on it and have a good attitude.”
