The Helias Lady Crusaders made a run to the Class 4 basketball quarterfinals last season.

And while getting at least that far this season is a big goal, there's a lot of time between tonight's season-opener and early March.

"We're not looking that far ahead," Helias coach Doug Light said as the Lady Crusaders prepared for tonight's game at Union. "Every season is different. Obviously, making a run in the playoffs is always your goal, but when we got off to a slow start last year, I don't think anyone looked at us as a quarterfinal team.

"We want to prepare ourselves to make a postseason run, that's our goal right now."
