Teams are back trying to make up for lost time. For the three-time defending state champions the Hazel Green lady Trojans, that means getting back to summer workouts.

"It feels great to finally be back in the gym and getting a chance to see the girls get back in the gym and start working and trying to get better for next year," said Head Coach Tim Miller. 

Not many teams can say they're the three-time defending state champions. For the lady Trojans, the road to winning their fourth-straight title starts now.

"It's very crucial at least we get the opportunity to get back in the gym and try to get girls better. Even though we can't have competition between other schools we can always have competition among us."

The Lady Trojans like many others have a lot of ground to make up since they weren't able to have spring training this year.

"We missed all of that spring training evaluation period and we started a week later in the summer so we've lost a few weeks for our skill development but we're gonna make that up this summer."

Though everyone is back on the court, things aren't exactly back to normal yet because everyone has to wear masks. 

Lady Trojans Head Coach Tim Miller says they've had to think outside the box when putting these workouts together, "We have to get a little creative, you know, we try not to group too many of them together we have them in groups of 2's. The older girls are kinda used to wearing masks because of the flu but I think we're getting used to it."

Though the basketball season is months away, the grind never stops for the Hazel Green lady Trojans.

Coach miller said you can feel the excitement in the air.

"I think I was contributing to the cause this is my first time back on the court since the SEC tournament was canceled in Nashville so all of us are really excited to finally be back in action."
