The 8th grade girls basketball “A” team played against non-conference opponent Laporte Kesling on the road.

Tallulah Gault led the offensive charge with 12 points and Emma Cook added 9 points while Makenzie Dejarnatt chipped in 6 and Olivia Horvath scored 4. Miranda German added a timely 3 and Lindsay Janus rounded out the scoring with 2 points. Janus delivered 3 assists and German added 2.
