    “We’re playing some different combinations with the boys and girls,” said SHS coach Terry Woodward. “The boys are inexperienced and we’re trying to get some experience. The girls are solid and playing everybody close. We just need to keep getting stronger as the season goes on.”
     
    Shawnee will compete in the Ada Tournament this weekend. The girls will play Friday, and the boys will play Saturday.
