Multiple Teams · JH Lady Bears split with Driver in season openers

Monroe Central’s junior high Lady Bears opened the season Monday night splitting with county rival Driver.

The 8th grade Lady Bears won by a score of 30-25.

“We handled the pressure of the Hawks late in the game by hitting our free throws down the stretch. We played outstanding defense and the win was a total team effort,” said Coach Bracken Barga.

The 7th grade score was 65-5 with Driver coming out on top of a short-handed MC squad. “We played a tough game, and we had a good second quarter. The girls showed a lot of heart during the game and didn’t give up,” said Coach Emma Rae Roberts.

The ladies will be back in action Thursday, November 30 at Daleville.
