Girls’ basketball captured a win in the first game of the season, defeating McKinney Christian 62-48. Senior Tatum Ewing led the scoring with 21 points while Freshman Kendall Droesch debuted her career with an impressive 18 points including 4 three-pointers. Freshman Katie Pelham added 11 points while leading all rebounders with a dozen boards. Sophomore point guard Kendel Arnold had six assists along with three steals on the evening. Senior captain Anne White along with Junior Aliya Li and Freshman Julia Bowers, Emma Kampe, Haley Phillips, and Tatum Plunk round out this year’s Lady Eagles roster. 
 

Building up to this season, the girls attended a team camp at Texas A&M in July. The girls were able to bond and begin teambuilding while facing great competition and exciting activities. Earlier this year the girls played in a Monday Night league, competing against some of the biggest private schools in our area. The experience proved to be greatly profitable as the girls gained experience and confidence for their upcoming season.

The Lady Eagles are looking forward to an exciting season as six Freshmen join the squad. Watch for continued leadership from Senior Captains Anne White and Tatum Ewing. Sophomore point guard, Kendel Arnold, will again take the helm as the floor general this season. Also look for an exciting perimeter game from Freshman Kendall Droesch and a strong inside presence from Freshman Katie Pelham. Junior Aliya Li, and Freshman Tatum Plunk, Haley Phillips, Emma Kampe, and Julia Bowers round out this year’s Varsity roster.

Be sure to be there for all the District games to support the girls in their quest to make the playoffs. Great pre-district match-ups will come against traditional rivals McKinney Christian and Prince of Peace. At the end of November, the girls will head down to San Antonio for a weekend of tough competition and team bonding experiences. Come join us for an exciting season. Go Lady Eagles! – Coach Joey Roach

 

This season I am looking forward to winning enough games to advance to playoffs and continuing to bond with the underclassman. I hope to lead my team to be the best player they can be. As a captain, I hope that I serve as an example to the underclassman both on and off the court. What I find will be most challenging this season is adjusting to my new position, new district, and a lot of new players.

Captain & Post

As of right now, we are 3-0, hopefully, 4-0 tonight, which is huge for Legacy girls basketball. This year our team is mostly made up of underclassmen including six freshmen, and it is a true blessing having them on our team. Our team has many great players and shooters but we all play a huge part and role in each of our games. Everyone on our team has an important role and is responible for our success. At the end of the day, hopefully, with a win, we are playing for our teammates and, most improtantly, for God. We are a team All for Him so despite the scoreborad, if we play our hardest and for the Lord, we will have a great season. I am very blessed to be one of the senior captains for such a great team, I could not ask for a better group of girls to play with and to have as close friends with for my senior year. I am very excited to see what the rest of season has in store for us.
