Girls take on Dixie Heights, end with unfortunate defeat


     On Saturday night, the girls varsity basketball team played Dixie Heights Colonels, but had an unfortunate loss, ending the game 54-42. 

     The team was led by seniors Emma Riccobene with 15 points and Kelsey Listerman with 13 points. The Birds were in the lead for part of the game, but when the Colonels made a three-pointer, they stole the lead and held onto it for the rest of the game.

     Coach Jamie Richey said, “I was very pleased with our team. This group of girls gave it their all every single game and left it out on the court. Unfortunately, not all of our shots went in.” 

     This year, the Ladybirds won 20 games and the program’s seventh consecutive District Title.  

     Overall, this past game against the Colonels was a tough match for the Birds. We wish them the best of luck next season.
