Injuries have had a role to play at the start of this 2016 season as Gabi Simpson was injured in the Season opener against McCloud, and did not retun to play against Newkirk. Kenizi Carmin injured her ankle in the first half against Newkirk, but return to action in the second half. Jose Hodd left the game after what looked like a leg or ankle injury in the second half of the match. Hood did not return to the field for the Lady Tigers. Although the Tigers trailed for most of the game, they played tough, and didn't quit against Newkirk. Cushing is a young team fielding only four seniors and two juniors. The bulk of the roster is made up of nine sophomores and four freshmen. Here is the Lady Tigers Roster as provided to RDMGtv by Coach Carmin.
