The Lady Jackets finished the week 2-0 after a win yesterday over Front Royal Christian School (FRCS) 20-10.

Again, active hands up top started the scoring. Lily Grossman ’21 got us started with one of her many steals, which led to a lay-up. Movement and good passes helped the offense work from there.

The Lady Jackets led 10-2 at the half. FRCS made a move late in the fourth quarter scoring a quick three followed by a two pointer, but the Lady Jackets were not going to be denied their win.
