What a home opener!! Lady Trojans showed off their fast paced offensive and tight defense last night against the Ellsworth Lancers. The Lancers facing the issue of low numbers as many of us are in Northern Michigan, combined their JV and Varsity squads this year. Lady Lancers didn’t let that stop them, they came out strong and battled all night long with the Trojans.
From fans to athletes, it was a fun filled atmosphere in Trojan Nation. Students also participated in flannel night and a NHS sponsored Toys 4 Tots fundraiser placing friends and family in jail, raising over $200 last night! The night ended with a 4th quarter timeout song from John Denver’s, “Country Roads.” Thank you fans and thank you NHS!
Cain, Perry, Willson, Fernandez and Vanniman all staters made the scorebook, with a bench made of mostly JV coming in to help, also adding to the score.
Senior members knew the importance of this “last-first game” of the season. Vanniman came on strong offensively, dropping 19 points. Willson opened the night with a smoking three to get the home crowd fired up. Huckle came in off the bench adding to the defensive pressure, grabbing two steals.
Congrats Ladies on your first W of the year!
