SENECA - The Seneca girls basketball team started the month losing 36-30 to the DeSoto Pirates on Tuesday, Dec. 1. 

The game was close at halftime as Seneca trailed by just one point 13-12. And, the Indians kept it close, but  had problems with turnovers, missed shots and not rebounding well.  It was definitely an early season game. 

For Seneca, Kendra Chambers led the team in scoring with 11 points,  Ella Greene  had 8 points  Nicky Trautsch  scored 6 points.  Grace Check  and Jorja Clark  each had two points and  Taylor Snyder  had one point. 

On Thursday, Dec. 3, things changed for the Indians as they handily defeated the visiting Weston Silver Eagles 46-28.

“We played very well at times and our defense was much better overall,” coach Kim Redman said later. “There was good balanced scoring this time.”  

Grace Check  led in scoring with 13 points, while Kendra Chambers  had nine points,  Taylor Snyder  had eight, Jorja Clark  had seven,  Nirea Klema  six points,   Ella Greene  had two, and  Bryonna Caya  scored one point.

On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the Seneca girls basketball team got in over their heads, when the visiting Highland Cardinals ran over the Indians 74-34.

We were no real match for them last night,” coach Redman said. “They are a much more aggressive and experienced team than us and converted many of our turnovers into baskets early on.  We were never able to close the gap and they had a strong second half too.”  

Kendra Chambers  scored seven points, while  Grace Check,  Taylor Snyder  and Bryonna Caya  each scored six points. Nicky Trautsch  and  Jorja Clark  each scored four points and Ella Greene  had one point.
