The Lady Stars are back in action on Tuesday at home as they take on the Sheridan Blackhawks. Go Stars! The JV Lady Stars travelled to South Montgomery Saturday morning for their Annual Sugar Creek Classic Tournament. The first game was against the Hotdogs from Frankfort, which Webo led going into halftime by a score of 18 to 13. Despite adding to the lead in the third quarter, the Stars struggled against heavy pressure in the fourth to finish with a loss of 41 to 42. After a short rest the team refocused on the Mounties from Southmont. The Stars came out shooting, dropping 4 three pointers and ending the first half up 23 to 12. The second half scoring came mostly inside the paint with good ball movement, opening up the middle, and solid defense, holding South to only 5 points and ending the game 39 to 17. It was a great effort by every member of this team that provided an opportunity to learn from mistakes and grow.
