Girls basketball falls to Northern Lebanon
|Nevin Hoenninger scored 11 points for L-S|
Northern Lebanon showed strength in the beginning of the game, scoring 16 points in the first quarter, compared to L-S's 3. The second quarter proved to be similar, with the Vikings putting up 17 points, and L-S scoring 8. Sophomore Laura Horner led the Lady Pioneers in total points for the game at 15, with junior Hoenninger scoring the second-most at 11. With the efforts of Horner and Hoenninger, the Lady Pioneers rallied in the second half of the game, scoring 11 points in the third quarter and 10 points in the fourth quarter, but Northern Lebanon had built a strong lead in the first half that made it challenging to overcome.
After the game, senior Rachel Shortes commented, "We knew that they were an aggressive team, but throughout the game we tried our best to defend them, regardless of the score."
The second half narrowed the margin between the competing teams, but the Lady Pioneers ultimately fell to the Vikings with a final score of 56-32.
