Multiple Teams · Lady Bears tied for 2nd in polls, receive 1st place vote

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.
