The Wildcats will continue Lone Star Conference play in Kingsville this weekend as the Lady Wildcats will take on the Texas A&M Javelinas this Saturday at 1 p.m.
“We’ve been playing at a really high level recently,” head coach Julie Goodenough said. “We have been taking away things from every game, whether wins or losses, and applying them to our future games.”
The Wildcats are coming off a 76-65 win against the Incarnate Word Cardinals this past Tuesday. The win put ACU at 11-3 overall and 6-2 in the LSC which is good enough for third place behind Tarleton State (7-1) and Midwestern State (7-2), and was Goodenough’s 300th career win as a head coach.
“I have been very blessed to have been a part of great coaching staffs all over and to have been able to coach great players,” Goodenough said. “I received many phone calls and text messages congratulating me on the milestone; it means a lot to have people take the time to tell me that.”
The career mark is going to have to be put on the side for now, as she says the main point is still to win games.
“Hopefully I’ll be able to take the time in the off season to look back and reflect,” Goodenough said. “But for now, the main thing is Kingsville and making sure we can take care of business there.”
The Javelinas are 3-11 overall and last in the LSC with a 1-7 record. The Wildcats are currently riding a four game winning streak.
“We want to be sure that we don’t get distracted,” Goodenough said. “When we stay focused and play the game like we want to, then we’re unstoppable.”
With a win on Saturday, ACU would become the third team in the LSC to reach seven conference wins, and would tie them with Midwestern State for second place.
