The Team of the Week segment will be featured on KUBE Ch. 57’s High School SportsZone Live program at 6 p.m. on Jan. 30 and 31.

“It’s not something we expect, ever,” Flores said. “I think it’s a byproduct of how hard they’ve been working. We’re at that point of the season where it’s a grind in the middle of district, and to have these kinds of accolades temporarily removes some of that pressure.”

The Lady Wildcats have surged out to a 6-0 start in District 17-6A play, and Flores said that despite coming off of a state championship season, the team is focused solely on the road ahead.

“Every night, we feel like we are playing our opponent’s best team, and if that’s the case then that means we are only going to get better,” she said. “I remember hearing [Connecticut women’s coach] Geno Auriemma say that they’re not defending anything, that they won that championship but this is a brand-new team. We feel the same way. We want to keep fighting for something new.”
