Lady Vikings Take 3 out of 4 From Gladiators

On Thursday, the Lady Vikings faced off against the Manor New Tech Gladiators. All season Lago Vista's strength has been their defensive pressure and last night was no different. Within the first minute of the game, the Lady Vikings had scored 10 points from their full court pressure, creating steals and forcing turnovers. Lago Vista grew and kept the lead the entire game. The final score was 29 to 5. Chloe Patton, Hanna Simmons, and Shea Yeary contributed 8 points, and Amelia Robinson scored 13 points. The Lady Vikings are doing great things this season and are only getting better! Congrats Lago Vista!


7B coming soon...


Our 8th grade B team fought hard but could not pull out a victory against Manor New Tech this time with a final score of 6-8. Isabelle Johnson led the team in scoring with 6 total points. We had 12 total steals as a team. The girls brought the game right down to the wire but a late layup by Isabelle Johnson was waved off. The girls continue to get better with the hard work they have been putting in at practice.


The 8th Grade A team won their game at Manor New Tech on Thursday. The final score was 20-16. The game was close the entire way but the LV girls left all their energy on the floor to secure the win. The team improved to 4-2 in district and look to finish the second half of the season on a strong note. Kambree Penton outside shooting was on full display during the game as she lead the team in scoring. Kendall Karg and Emma Clark lead the team in steals which lead to many transitional baskets.


On Saturday the girls competed in the San Saba Tournament. The girls dropped both tournament games 31-20 vs San Saba and 52-19 vs. Goldthwaite. Kambree Penton lead the team in scoring with some outstanding outside shooting. Addison Lockhart added some great outside shooting as well from the 3 point line. Turnovers plagued the team throughout the tournament which cause the team to fall behind in the games. The coaching staff plan to dedicate most of the practice this week to ball control and passing.
