Lady Falcons looking to get untracked

-A +A
The Colfax High girls basketball team will take its final test before the start of Pioneer Valley League action on Friday when the Lady Falcons travel to Ponderosa for a non-league tripleheader. Freshman action will get things going at 4 p.m., followed by the JV game at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity contest at 7 p.m. Currently, Colfax is 8-6 on the season after going 1-2 at last week’s Folsom Tournament. The Lady Falcons lost its opener to Burbank but then rebounded with a 37-33 win over Lodi in the second round. In the consolation game, Colfax dropped a 50-48 decision to McClatchy, the same team that Colfax had defeated by two points earlier last month at the Del Oro Tournament. Colfax coach Dave Campbell will be looking for the Lady Falcons to use their final non-league game as a chance to start getting more consistent on offense. “We need to be a little more balanced in our scoring every game out,” Campbell said. “We’re playing hard on defense and we need to carry that over to the offensive end.” Thus far this season, Colfax has relied on the scoring prowess of Haley Biles, Ashley Scott and Haleigh Lis. Lis brings size at 6 feet to the Colfax line-up and has improved to become a physical presence in the post this season. Junior Kayla Tremereaux is also playing well in the paint for the Falcons, while junior Amber Tobiasz has great athleticism as she adjusts to the varsity level. Sophomore Reagan Lillie has also been impressive early on this season as evidenced by her 18-point outburst against Dixon. The 5-foot-9-inch Lillie can play several positions, and Campbell calls her a big part of the future. Colfax will jump into Pioneer Valley League play when they host Foothill on Thursday, Jan. 12.
