Maybe the Christmas break is just what the South Effingham girls basketball team needs.
The Lady Mustangs, following Tuesday night’s loss to Hardeeville (S.C.), dropped their third straight to fall to 4-6.
“We played horrible,” said coach Stacey Womack. “Right now, we lack the intensity we had at the beginning of the season. We’re lacking a leader or two to correct some of the problems.”
The Lady Mustangs are off until the Bobcat Classic next week at Bluffton (S.C.) High School, where they will open the three-day tournament against the East Coast Dunkaroos, a team from Australia.
In the meantime, the team will practice today and Friday and then take the weekend off. They will return to practice Dec. 26.
“We’ll try a few different things and regroup and try to focus on the positive,” Womack said.
The second-year coach isn’t sure what her team needs at the time, but a break just might be the thing before the Bobcat Classic from Dec. 27-29.
“We haven’t had any time off,” Womack said. “It didn’t seem like Thanksgiving was a break.”
