On Friday night, the Lions fell to the Tigers 40-51.

Freshmen Jaylee Long and Lily Ruehmeier led the way for the Lions scoring 14 points each while Ruehmeier also pulled down 6 rebounds.

“A poor start doomed us. We came out flat and Grant didn’t. It was a 9-0 game in 4 minutes,” Coach Thomasma.

The Lions recovered mid way through the game, and cut the lead to 5, but couldn’t come up with the big shot, and Grant pulled away.

“I’m happy we didn’t fold and that we kept competing but we have to play better against Tri-County on Monday in Districts for a full game if we are going to have a chance,” Coach Thomasma.

The Lions will travel to Fremont on Monday the 26ht to play against Tri-County in the opening round of Districts. The game will start at 7:30pm.
