Saturday morning, the Tecumseh Lady Braves came to JBA in what would be a potential regional preview. Much of this game was led by the Lady Lions, the first half score would be 29-21 Lions after a big 12 point first half from Brooklynn Jones and 10 from Kalea Fleming. The second half would be held much tighter in scoring, much of the quarter kept about a 9 point Lion lead, as we would trade buckets with Tecumseh, but down the stretch, the Lady Braves would pull in closer and ultimately take the lead and win 49-45.
In scoring Brooklynn Jones finishes with a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds, Kalea Fleming had 16 points with 6 rebounds and 5 assists, Makenzie VanHoy had 11, and Isabelle Waggner rounded out the Lions scoring with 6.
This drops our record to 6-3 on the season, and we will be on the road for the next few games. Varsity only plays Tuesday night 1/5 at Shoals (6:00 PM) and JV/V at Wood on Thursday night 1/7 (6:30 JV start). JV will also play at home against Springs Valley Tuesday night, starting at 6.
