Roo Wrestling Results

The Lady Roos traveled to Lewisville to compete in a 41 team tournament.

With only 4 girls in the varsity Bracket the team placed 7th overall. Placing 1st and still undefeated Camille Fournier, taking 3rd Kaylynn Green and placing 4th Kadee Kelley.

On The JV side, Jacy Pundsack took 4th, Perla Rodriquez took 2nd and Rhiannon Workman took 3rd. Congratulations, ladies!

Lady Roo Basketball Update

Lady Roo Basketball battled defensively for 4 solid quarters, and had to come back from a 7 point half time deficit to win the game with a McCenzie "Dark Helmet" Wells post move with 3 seconds left on the clock 32-30. No one hit double figures, but when you have 5 playing as 1 on the court not caring who gets the credit, and some defense, good things happen.


Lady roos headed to LD Bell Friday before they have Christmas Break hoping to end the 12 game District losing skid from last season. LADY ROOS FOR LIFE!!!
