Lady Lions Extend Win Streak to 8

The Varsity Girls Basketball Team trailed Madeira last night by 9 points going into the 4th quarter but refused to give up and rallied to a 49-47 victory. The Lady Lions had played 3 lackluster quarters and had been consistently frustrated by the zone defense and consistent shooting by Madeira but never lost their determination to win the game. The 4th quarter rally was fueled by 3 pointers by Courtney Grogan, Sarah Shoemaker, and Mikaela Rupp. The senior guards combined for 36 points scoring 11, 12, and 13 respectively. It was an exciting come-back victory fueled by solid defense and spectacular outside shooting. The girls play next Thursday, Dec. 5 at home.
