The Lady Lions varsity team suffered two losses against Round Rock and Hyde Park this past weekend on the first day of their tournament. Their scores went up the next two days of the tournament, which helped them end up winning the championship game of the tournament.

“We struggled the first day,” junior Jess Ross said. “The second day we fought hard earning top speed in the bronze and going undefeated the third day. This season is going to be amazing.”

The ladies played two matches their first day. On the first day they played against the two teams mentioned above, which they both turned out defeated in.

“Even though we lost,” junior Murphy Curry said, “we played hard and worked more as a team throughout the day.”

This season is going to be amazing.”
