Entering the year with just one senior on her roster and almost twice as many newcomers as lettermen, Wylie girls basketball coach Amy Powell knew this season would be a process.
The fourth-year Lady Bulldogs mentor knew there would be growing pains. She was just hoping her squad would make enough progress by district time to challenge for a playoff spot in a tough District 4-5A race.
After an 0-3 start to league play, things were looking bleak for the Lady Bulldogs. But with a 3-2 record since, including competitive losses to top-20 teams from Lubbock Monterey and Lubbock Cooper, WHS enters the final week of the regular season in control of its own postseason destiny and playing its best basketball of the year.
