KILLDEER COWBOYS

51st Annual Roughrider Basketball Tournament’s second round features blowouts and buzzer beaters.
Practice makes perfect and since last year, the Killdeer Cowboys girls basketball program has put in a lot of hours and reps to strengthen their defense and shooting. Last season the girls finished with a rough 3-17 record. They are hoping to climb closer to the top this year and potentially host a Region play-in game.
The Killdeer Cowboys welcome a new head basketball coach to the team this year, Greg Pruitt, who is taking over for Andy Murphy. The Cowboys had an 8-14 record last season and have two of their best scorers returning to the program. Their focus is to be a Top 8 team in Region 7 and improve steadily every day.
