This time last year La Joya Palmview head girls’ basketball coach Anisa Reyna was coaching the La Joya Juarez-Lincoln Lady Huskies. Tuesday night Reyna returned to Juarez-Lincoln for the first time since her departure for a District 30-5A matchup between her Lady Lobos and her former Lady Huskies.
As is oftentimes the case when a program undergoes a coaching change, it takes time for the new coach to instill his or her system. As a result, wins are oftentimes few and far between in a coach’s first or even second year on the job. While the Lady Lobos’ 2-7 district record so far this season is proof of that this year, their 45-33 come-from-behind victory over the Lady Huskies Tuesday evening was a definite step in the right direction.
“One thing that we’ve emphasized this season is utilizing our team’s speed and quickness,” said Reyna. “That is not something that they’ve done here in the past but it’s part of our new program because those are our strengths as we demonstrated in the second half of tonight’s game.”
