High School Sports

Preview: Airport girls basketball

Airport welcomes back five veterans from last season’s Region 5-3A championship team that suffered an unexpected first-round loss in the state playoffs.

With senior Morgan McCray and juniors Taylor Payne, Kayla Sutton, Lexy Conyers and Kaela Mansell returning, the Eagles expect to stick around a bit longer when postseason play rolls around in February.

Experience is Airport’s strength, but coach Trey Wallace says his team must be a better rebounding and foul-shooting team to reach its goals.
