WEISER — Recently, on Nov. 13, the Weiser Wolverines women’s basketball team began their season with an away game, where they traveled to Nampa to take on the Nampa Christian Trojans in a non-conference game. Additionally, the Wolverines continued their season on Nov. 16 against the Melba Mustangs for the Wolverines home opener.
In the game against Nampa Christian, the Wolverines appeared to be in a tough battle. In the first half, the Trojans went into the locker room with a two point lead. However, the Wolverines were able to outscore the Trojans by eight points in the third quarter to take the lead, and continued to increase their lead in the fourth quarter in order to win their season opener 50-43.

Following their first two games, the Wolverines will continue through the non-conference portion of their schedule when they travel to Melba to attempt to get revenge on the Mustangs by beating them on their home court.
