With three returning starters and seven returning lettermen, the Breckenridge girls basketball team is looking for a turnaround this season. The Lady Bucks were 7-20 overall and 2-10 in District 7-3A a year ago.
“I think our balance on offense and added experience will benefit us,” said coach Bryan Goehring, who is beginning his second season as the Breckenridge head coach. “We graduated our point guard, so we will be looking for the next leader to step up.”
Aimee Toliver, a 5’6” senior forward, was the team’s top scorer last year, averaging 8.6 points per game.
Zaea Ragle, a 5-9 sophomore center, led the Lady Bucks with 7.3 rebounds per game during her freshman season. Camila Palacios averaged 2.4 assists per game.
Goehring is also looking for a major contribution from a freshman, 5’9” forward Destiny Jamison.
Breckenridge will have to travel north for all of its district games. The seven-team District 7-3A includes Jacksboro, Henrietta, Bowie, Holliday, Nocona and Wichita Falls City View. Nocona, the defending district champion, and third-place Bowie each reached the regional quarterfinals last year.
The Lady Bucks are hoping the experience they gained last year can help them earn one of the four playoff berths from District 7-3A.
