Coach Dante McDaniel wants to take in a new approach this post season. He does not want to look down the road. He wants to take each round game by game and focus on the task at hand. Hitchcock Lady Dogs have made two regional appearances back to back but not one starter returns from that team. Hitchcock is very young this season but do not lack the talent. They are led by junior Jimile Johnson who is a junk yard dog. She lights up the stat book in every category. Junior post Breanna Birdow cleans up the boards and wrecks havoc in the press. Freshman sensation Chloe Coutee can shoot lights out at any given time and has polished her game getting to the free throw line. Demi Dickey is the hustler on the team and is very scrappy. She is a tough finisher around the rim and can shoot from beyond the arc. Senior Lex Rodriguez is the only senior starter on the team. She can pretty much play any position on the floor and is a good floor manager. Hitchcock’s bench is what gives opposing teams problems. Any one of them can start at any giving time and will be a solid 5 in any other district in 3A ball.
We want to wish our Lady dogs luck tomorrow as they travel to Atascosita for their first round playoff game!!
