CHICKASHA – A short bench has yet to come in to play for the Drover women’s basketball team this season. Even with eight active players, the Drovers fail to lose intensity during games.

When Brooke Worcester was injured and had to miss two games, the team battled with seven athletes against top opponents. The key, said senior Rashelle Carr, is working as a single unit.
