Freshman Starter Anna Sachire states, “I think that that was a game where we all really played with and for each other. I also think the rivalry between us and St. Joe also added extra motivation.

After halftime, the Ladies came close in the third quarter as the St. Joe Indians scored 10 points and the Kingsmen 9. Redeeming themselves, the girls scored 13 in the final quarter. The rivalry came to an end as the ladies won by a long shot 53-28. 

“It was a great atmosphere to play in, especially since we were on our home court. Winning as a team, especially against our rivals, is one of the best feelings,” Sophomore Starter Lizzy Green said. 

After this match-up, the Lady Kingsmen held a 12-5 record.

For their next game, the Kingsmen will travel to Northwood for a non-league tournament on Jan. 10. The St. Joe Indians on the other hand were left with a 0-4 record and will challenge the Elkhart Lions next.
