Head coach Kebra Kallstrom said the girls have been fun to coach as they push each other to get better every day.
“They encourage each other, support each other, and push each other to improve,” Kallstrom said. “I could tell this group has really put in a lot of time outside of the season.”
The teams have scored a combined 444 points with the A team scoring 322 of them. The team’s high came in a 49-30 victory over Encampment Middle School. The majority of teams’ points came from Britney Larson and Brooklyn Larson.

“Coach (Kayla) Goldy and I have really been lucky to work with such a great group of kids,” Kallstrom said. “Not only are they great athletes, but many of them are model students and people.”
The seventh graders in Rawlins have shown to have some rising stars and give high hopes to the program for the future Lady Outlaws.
“I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these future Lady Outlaws,” Kallstrom said.
