On Saturday, Nov. 21, the JV girls basketball team played a home game against Penn High School. The teams stayed in a close range the whole game, but the Lady Indians defeated the Kingsmen with a final score of 41-36.

“Overall, [I think] we played well and very hard today,” Anna Weir (10) said.

During the third quarter the score was close at Penn 32-31. The final quarter was intense with the clock stopping multiple times with just seconds left.

“It was great beating Penn [High School]. They always come thinking they’ll beat us, so it was nice showing them different,” Ashley Todd (10) said.

The Indians felt very accomplished and proud to have beat the Kingsmen. However, even after beating Penn High School, the Indians acknowledge they have some improvements to make.

“Even though we won, there are still some things that we need to work on. We will continue to work hard at practice and improve ourselves as a team,” Meghan Long (9) said.

The next JV girls basketball home game will be Friday, Dec. 4 at 5:30 p.m. against Merrillville.
