Coach likes what he sees as Lady Longhorns start 2-0

    Scoring at or above the 60-point mark in the first games of the season will make any coach smile.
    Chase County Coach Mark Bottom was all that after his Lady Longhorn team’s 2-0 start last week as he watched the offense rack up the points, 60 against Cozad and 64 against Wauneta-Palisade.
    And, on the other side of the ball, he said he felt good about the number of points their opponents were held to in both games.
    “I was very happy with our scoring,” he said, “and our defense is heading the right way.”
    He said they stayed with man-to-man about 75 percent of both games.
    “And, I want to stay there,” he said.
