Lady Trojans come out strong and defeat the Lady Blackcats in the first round of districts


On February 26 the varsity girls basketball team played Herculaneum at Central High School in the first game of districts. 

Starters were senior Nora Henry, junior Ava Wright, junior Lani Elder, sophomore Shannon Riddle, and freshman Eden Robart.  

Before the game Wright said, “To win this game we will have to start out strong and keep a positive attitude the whole time. Last time we played them it was a physically rough game and we are now prepared to see that.” 

At the end of the first half the Lady Trojans lead the Blackcats 38 to 21. They forced multiple turnovers and executed their plays.

They play next in the semifinal game on February 28 at Central Park Hills against the Lady Rebels.
