The Lady Deer fell to Pasadena Memorial Friday night 62-51 in both team’s district opener.

The first quarter started out shaky for the Lady Deer, with turnovers plaguing their offense and allowing Memorial to gain an advantage. However, Deer Park utilized free throws as well as 4 points from freshman starting guard Enriqua Bellow (11 pts, 6 rebounds, 5 steals) to keep the score within 3 points.

This hard playing did not go unnoticed, and Lady Deer Senior post Mikayla Bush noted how well the underclassmen are contributing to this team. "They work hard in practice and we're all coming together really well when we play. When you have young talent like that it's good to use it and I think as long as we all do our jobs we can have a good season," said Bush.
