With plenty of size and depth, Gering girls’ basketball head coach Adam Freeburg is hoping to make a solid run in the Class B ranks this season. The Lady Bulldogs have jumped out to a 3-3 start after posting a solid win over Wheatland Dec. 17. With just enough early season contests against some tough teams, the Lady Bulldogs are getting hungrier for a winning season. They will be in the hunt to best last season’s record of 12-12 and their second place finish at the district tournament after a hard-fought loss against McCook.

Gering has one returning starter in senior Katie O’Boyle but she is joined by a strong group of classmates to round out the Lady Bulldog roster. They include seniors Savannah Walker, Danyele Ysac, Kayla Todd, and juniors Kaylee Spreier, Allie Vacha, Ashlyn Schultz, Sam Rahmig and Dakota Wademan. The Bulldogs will also get help from senior transfer Toni Rosado, a former Scottsbluff player.

Height, grit and good team chemistry have all proven to be key strengths so far this season for Freeburg’s squad. In addition to a strong work ethic during the season, the team has invested many additional hours through the off season and summer months working out and conditioning in the Bulldog weight room.

Like the Gering boys, the Lady Bulldogs will have to be prepared for a series of road trips through mid-January. They close down their pre-holiday season this weekend with two road games, traveling to Burns, Wyo. on Friday. Dec. 20 and then Chadron on Saturday, Dec. 21. They will return to action Jan. 2-4 at the Sidney Holiday Tournament before continuing on the road Jan. 10 in Sidney and Jan. 18 in Casper, Wyo.
