LADY BRONC BASKETBALL - The Lady Broncs open the “Flaming Gorge” Classic this evening in Rock Springs against the Lady Tigers.

Three teams are unbeaten in the Top 5 in the latest 4-A Girls Basketball poll. The Lady Broncs are 4-0 and ranked 2nd behind 4-0 Gillette this week. Also unbeaten is 3rd-ranked Laramie at 6-0.

Head coach Derek Bissitt is in his 2nd season with the Lady Broncs. They have no Seniors on the roster, and he says the more they play together, the more the Lady Broncs will continue to get better with their best basketball ahead of them. Bissitt says with a three-week break starting next week, these games become very important to the development of the players' confidence.
