Lady Wolves improve to 13-2
The Warm Springs girls basketball team won two games last week, improving to 13-2 on the year.
"I am really proud of this team," said Warm Springs coach Jeff Derby. "Even when they aren't playing their best they find a way to win. I guess that is because they work really hard and have good attitudes."
