Westbury Christian shrugs off losses, shoot for fifth straight TAPPS girls hoops crown. (Article written by: Jeff Jenkins/Houston Chronicle)
Out of character: The Westbury Christian girls basketball team recently ended a seven-game skid with a 65-15 rout against Emery/Weiner in the TAPPS District 4-4A opener. Although many of the losses were to Class 5A public schools, it was still a brutal stretch for the four-time reigning TAPPS Class 4A state champions.
Making a point: Senior Carly Truesdale, a transfer from Clements, is the latest in a long line of quality point guards from Westbury Christian. Truesdale, who is averaging 16 points and eight assists, is following in the footsteps of former Wildcats standouts such as Amber Orrange (Stanford), Tiffany Davis (South Carolina) and Sylvana Okde (Louisiana-Lafayette).
Coming up: Westbury Christian will host Lutheran South at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, before traveling to St. Louis, Mo., for two games in the MLK Girls Basketball Showcase.
Truesdale gets strong support from 5-5 junior Hannah Cambel at shooting guard. Cambel is a 3-point specialist, who hit seven threes against Brenham in the Aldine ISD Tournament semifinals. She is averaging 12 points. MORE ON HERE
