GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: Tigers using summer to reload


EDWARDSVILLE — Three months after placing fourth at the Class 4A state tournament for the program’s third state trophy, the Edwardsville Tigers were back on the basketball court.

Another one. First here as indicated.

With Kate Martin (Iowa), Rachel Pranger (Bradley volleyball) and Myriah Noodel-Haywood (Western Kentucky) now graduated from the program, the Tigers are using the summer season to build a new identity.

“This is the third weekend for us, and I have seen some improvement. This is going to be a process after losing those kids as far as their athleticism, basketball ability and their leadership,” EHS coach Lori Blade said. “We really need to find somebody that is going to step up and be our leader. They are getting better. We are playing a lot of young kids. I’m OK with that. We just have to transition them into varsity-level basketball.”
