It’s been a learning process for Tidioute Charter’s girls basketball team, going winless last season. With a new head coach this year, the Lady Bulldogs won their first game since Feb. 6, 2012, breaking a 23-game losing streak, with a 37-19 win last week over Jamestown Bethel. Junior Tanya Krouse scored 16 of her team’s 37 points. The Bulldogs fell back to Earth on Tuesday, losing at Youngsville, but for the win, and representing the Bulldogs, Krouse is the Times Observer Female Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Little Caesars.
