JV girls basketball defeated the Highland Trojans on Nov. 28, with a final score of 42-34.

“We didn’t do as good as we should’ve. There were way too many turnovers then we should of had. We picked it up in the second half and talked on defense,” Megan Long (9) said.

The girls started off the game with a rough start.

“I think [the game] went pretty well, but we definitely could have done a lot better with communicating, Stephanie Dijak (9) said.

After the second quarter, the Lady Indians stepped up their game.

“The mistakes we made in the first quarter [were minimized] in the third and fourth quarter. We talked on defense and we cheered each other on,” Long said.

Since the girls did not get the results they expected, the Lady Indians have improvements to make before the next game.

“I think our help side defense needs a lot of improvement. [We need] better passing and we need to communicate a lot more,” Courtney Carlson (10) said.
The next game is on Dec. 1 against the Munster Mustangs on their home court.
