Laramie High School girls basketball teams played South High School on Thurs., Feb. 8 and Thunder Basin on Sat., Feb. 10.  
 
LHS basketball went to Cheyenne South High School to take on SHS basketball on Thursday. 
“We feel pretty confident going into the game against South. We beat them during conference. The girls will just need to have a solid defense,” junior Brooke Worman said.  
 
South has been one of the easier competitions for the Lady Plainsmen this season and they beat SHS 59-39.  
 
“We scored mostly threes during the game. Beating them felt pretty good, it was a fun game to play in,” senior Sekoya Romero said. 
 
Going into the game against Thunder Basin has taken a lot of preparation for LHS basketball. 
 
“I think we could play really well against Thunder Basin. Last time we played them we kept up pretty well for the most part. As long as we play together,” Worman said.  
 
However Lady Plainsmen were upset with outcome of the game Sat. a loss to Thunder Basin 57-53.   
 
Thunder Basin has been one of the tougher competitions for Lady Plainsmen, although the toughest competitor in the conference has been Campbell County High School. 
 
“They beat every team by like 30 points,” Romero said. 
 
Campbell County isn’t the only tough competitor this year. 
 
“Both Gillette teams are pretty good this year. East is also a really big competition for us this year,” Worman said.   
 
Lady Plainsmen have had a good season with a few upsets.  
 
“The girls season has been going good especially with how young we are as a team, a lot of younger girls have stepped up and shown a lot of maturity on the court,” Worman said. 
 
Romero agreed that the LHS girls’ season has been going well. 
 
“Our season has been pretty good. Like all teams some games are played good and some are played bad. As season goes on we are starting to play more as team,” Romero said.  
 
Lady Plainsmen are 3-5 in the East conference and their record as a whole is 8-12.  
 
The Lady Plainsmen are coached by Laura Pollard and Tyson Woodford and the captains of the Lady Plainsmen basketball team are junior Jen Aadland and senior Lexi Pulley. 
 
The next Lady Plainsmen games will be against Campbell County High School Fri., Feb. 16 at home and Sheridan High School Sat., Feb. 17. 
 
As season slows down for the Lady Plainsmen they hope to make it to the regional tournament which is what the Lady Plainsmen are focusing most on preparing for right now.  
The Lady Plainsmen have to win certain games to get a good pool in the regional tournament.  
 
The regional tournament will be held in our home gym on the weekend of March 1-3 
 
Senior night will be held on Fri., Feb. 23.  
 
“I’m kind of upset it’s my senior year and that the season is starting to come to an end, it’s pretty upsetting,” Romero said.
