Albany -- The Albany girls basketball team didn't have the best of years last season, finishing without a win.
But the struggles of the past leave room for infinite improvement, and the Squaws are already showing their skills this season.
After dropping its first four games, Albany rebounded to win two in a row, including its Region opener, and assistant coach Candace Stewart says things are going much better this year.
"The season has been going pretty well. The girls have shown they're ready to play this season. Working real hard in practice and showing it on the court as well."
Brittany Roberson says, "We're doing really good. We actually already won more games than we did last year, so we're doing pretty good right now."
Stewart says the Squaws have strong senior leadership.
"We have veterans this year. They're really bringing a lot to the table. We have Brittany Roberson, number 34 that's a senior. She's leading us, bringing in good things for the team."
Roberson says, "Right now I feel I'm one of leaders of the team. I'm just trying to carry the team with the help of a few other players."
Senior Kristian Lindsey says the atmosphere surrounding the team has her very confident.
"I expect us to win every game we put our mind to, and play as a team."
And the great start in the region has Albany aiming high.
Roberson says, "We're looking to be undefeated in region, and so far we're doing very well with our one win."
"We're doing good, and we're going to keep going until we make it to state," adds Lindsey.
Albany will host Stewart-Quitman tonight at 6pm.
