Peabody girls ready for the win

Peabody Burns basketball coach Travis Schafer is working to shatter the Warriors’ three-year losing streak and give his sophomores their first basketball win.

But after that, he hopes Peabody will become a competitive team in their league during his second year as coach.

“The first one is always hardest to get,” he said Tuesday.

No seniors will be returning to the team this year, but this past year’s sophomores have varsity playing experience under their belts.

Incoming junior Anna Eldridge has good potential as a guard, he said. Others who could provide some leadership include: Kaete Johson, junior, a forward and Mya Winter, sophomore, a guard.

He said the team has the good luck to already know many of the players.

“I see that we jell very well together,” he said. “We have a pretty big family atmosphere and so that’s kind of what we call ourselves. It’s a pretty good situation.”

Peabody Burns will face Herington at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at Herington.
