The Patriots lost to Westlake (Utah) on Wednesday.

“We were facing a taller, more physical team in both instances and our girls didn’t box out well and weren’t able to attack the way we are used to attacking the basket and had to settle for shots,” Christian coach VICKIE CARRINGTON said. “We are battling illnesses and have struggled from a conditioning standpoint.”

The Patriots are winless at the high-profile event, but welcome the challenge to face elite competition in preparation for the future.

“It made sense to give everyone an opportunity to see what it’s like so they could learn what they need to work on what we’re good at, and what we definitely need to become better at and most importantly to gain their confidence helping us to move forward for league and playoffs,” Carrington said.

“We tried to turn it on in the fourth quarter or at least get a little more energy in the fourth. I think we have a lot of potential and looking forward to getting better and growing with these girls.”
