Monroe Central’s girls basketball team has moved up in the polls after just one game.
The Lady Bears went on the road to defeat Cowan 73-23 in their opener and post the 11th best offensive average, 6th best defensive average and 5th best winning margin in the state.
The win also propelled MC to a tie in the polls for 2nd place with Eastern (Pekin) and behind only Oak Hill. The Lady Bears also received a first place vote this week.
MC will be on the road this week at Wes-Del before playing their home opener on Nov. 21 against Northeastern.
