BUTTE – Wednesday night, the Butte Central girls basketball teams hit the road for Hamilton, as the first round of the Western A divisional tournament begins Thursday.

The Maroons, who are coming off a Southwestern A district title this past weekend, are using that momentum to fuel their next phase of the postseason. Despite the glorious accomplishment, head coach Meg Murphy and her squad are well aware that from this point forward the competition is only going to get tougher.

“Every time you advance in a tournament, the level of competition can be that much greater, so the room for error is very small,” said Murphy.” “We’re going to have to limit our turnovers, play the best basketball we’re capable of playing and hopefully we shoot the ball well.”

“I think we just have to remain focused on what we do. Everyone’s got to do their jobs. Hopefully that will translate to some good play at divisionals,” said senior guard Tricia Joyce.
