Last night your Lady Cubs hosted the Lady Jackrabbits of Forney Warren Middle School for the first District game of the year. Your Lady Cubs jumped out to an early lead thanks to the awesome play Hoggat, Rink, Rury, Armstrong, Davis, Probst, Rickets, Johnson, and Crouch! We saw many good plays and defensive game play! But the play of the game came from Emily Hooten with 3.2 seconds left on the clock Hoogat is looking for an open player and finds Emily Hooten for the game winning fade away shot! Lady Cubs win! It was a great game!
