It took about one quarter for the Montgomery Central Lady Timberwolves to “get comfortable” in their season-opening basketball game against the Albemarle Bulldogs on Nov. 19. Once the Lady Wolves found that comfort zone, they came back from a five-point deficit in the first quarter to take a commanding 12-point lead by the end of the second quarter. 

In the second half the Lady Wolves and the Lady Bulldogs played fairly even, which worked out well for the Lady Timberwolves as they cruised to a 55 – 45 victory in the school’s first game playing together. 

“We’re pretty excited about the win,” first-year head coach William Hunter of Montgomery Central stated after the Timberwolves’ win.
