A month ago, the Kingman Academy girls basketball team was stumbling out of the gate with a 4-5 record.

The confidence that carried the Lady Tigers to an undefeated regular season and a trip to last year's Charter Athletic Association 3A title game appeared to be gone.

KAHS was in the midst of a rebuilding year and learning a new offense - and it showed.

Now, however, coach Dave Scroggins has his team in a four-game winning streak after Saturday's 41-10 victory over Desert Heights. At 8-5, all things appear right for the Lady Tigers.

"I think it's just them having a chance to play with each other on a consistent basis," Scroggins said of the turnaround.

KAHS jumped out to a 10-3 lead after the first quarter and led 34-4 at halftime after outscoring Desert Edge 18-1 in the second quarter.

"They have really started to gel recently," Scroggins said. "I put in a new offense at the beginning of the year and they are finally starting to understand it."

Ashlea Tomlinson led the Lady Tigers with 10 points. Hanna Mousley added six points.

While all appears well for KAHS, there are still challenges on the horizon with games at West Phoenix and EVAC coming up. There are also challenges within as, according to Scroggins, work still needs to be done on the press and in other defensive areas in order to contain outside shots.

Scroggins is optimistic about the future.

"We weathered the storm, weathered the bumps and I think we are in a good spot," he said.
