Senior Amber Mazankowski was the high scorer for the game with 11 points, and freshman Claire Ostrand was not too far behind with 10 points, making five out of seven free throws.

The Lady Eagles came out as the champions of the Holiday Tournament for the second year in a row. Senior Emily Simmons said, “It was fun to play with my team after the break! Even though we were pretty out of shape, we still wore some pretty awesome Christmas socks!” For being “out of shape,” the Lady Eagles pulled off some good wins.
Currently, the Lady Eagles are 8-3 and will travel to Spalding tonight to take on the Spalding Academy Shamrocks.
