The girls played tremendous defense led by Hannah "The Magician" Mills, Ava "SuperStar" Sawyer, Chloe "The Lightning Bolt"Breen, and Zoe "I will stuff you" Hall. The team was energized by the effort of Amalia "It was my Birthday" Stubbs, Rebekah "Not in my house" Price, Kelsie "I do what it takes" Smithee, Mickey "I will out work you" Delarosa, and Madison "I am the fastest girl on the court" Gonzales. At the end of the game Madelyn " I will buy the team Pizza" Swenson got a huge steal and layup to put the game out of reach for the explorers.  Great job girls on a well-deserved victory.

    • Huge congratulations go out your LSMS 8th grade girls’ 'B' basketball team for their impressive victory at Victory last night.  Solid, scrappy defense played by Lily Hunter, Thin Oo, Bella Cochell, Monroe Petty, Lilly Robertson, and Emmaline Nelson was the key to the victory.  Leading the offense with amazing ball handling and court awareness was Dahpoe Hser and Brynlee Wright. Key baskets were made by Adri Pratt and Sam Bachman with crucial free throws made by Eman Kaden to seal the victory.  Great game ladies!!  Remember we have pictures on Monday so bring those clean jerseys and smiles Monday.
