Class A Girls Basketball: Balanced scoring attack a big factor in Legacy’s undefeated start

Legacy girls basketball has been on a tear to start this season, as they’re off to a 6-0 record.

The Sabers are ranked highly in a number of key categories. They’re first in points per game, rebounds per game, three point percentage, and they’re tied for first in assists.

The team said its offense can hit opponents in a bunch of different ways from night to night.

 “We’ve been led in scoring by four or five different kids so far this year, and I think we’ve got around four kids averaging about 10 points a game,” head coach Jim Petrik said. “You really can’t key in on any of us, Now it’s more of a balanced attack, which I like.”

“We really try to play unselfish basketball, and just not worry about how many points you score,” senior Kailey Weigel said. “They’ll just come to whoever’s making the baskets that night.”

The Sabers are the only West Region team to have five players averaging at least eight points a game.

They resume competition Saturday afternoon against Turtle Mountain.
