Sturgis’ varsity girls basketball squad traveled to Edwardsburg Friday to start the 2017-18 season and lost the Wolverine Conference game to the Eddies 62-37.
Edwardsburg outscored the Trojans 17-5 in the first quarter for enough of a cushion the rest of the way.
“Edwardsburg is a team that moves well on offense and finds the open shooters,” Sturgis coach Amie Burger said. “Zarycki definitely is a tough matchup. We didn’t do a very good job at defending her tonight. Offensively, we were rushing our shots and not being very selective. We are going to have to be more disciplined to run our offense. On a positive note despite the score the girls played hard in the fourth quarter. We will have to bring that intensity to the start of our game on Tuesday against Schoolcraft.”
