The 7th grade Lady Cubs A team traveled to county rival Center Grove Central last night and improved their record to 2-0 by defeating the Trojans 31-25.  Despite several runs by Center Grove, including pulling within 1 point in the 4th quarter, the Lady Cubs never relinquished their lead.  In the waning minutes Maya Elliott stepped up and was clutch at the freethrow line nailing 7 of 8 shots to seal the victory.  Maya led the team in the scoring column with 11 points to go with her 3 rebounds and 3 assists.  Emma Jones saw limited action, but put in quality time making some great passes.  She dished out 5 assists, put in 6 points, and pulled down 3 rebounds.  Sarah Sullivan stepped up her leadership on the court with her consistent ball handling and scrappy defense nabbing 8 steals, dishing 3 assists, as well as 5 boards to go with her 4 points.  Britney Klotzsche found herself in early foul trouble, but put in 4 points and led the team in rebounding with 6 boards before fouling out late in the 4th.  Sydney Logsdon and Rilee King played significant minutes combining for 2 points each, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals.  Morgan Luna and Lexi Engelking rotated in to step up the intensity of the Lady Cub defense helping to keep in front of the Trojans.  Congratulations Lady Cubs!  Make sure to come out and support the Lady Cubs here in their first home game of the season next Wednesday against conference foe Decatur Central.
