The Horizon Christian Lady Lions captured an undefeated season for the first time in the schools recorded history last night. They knew that it would be a tough game, but they were in store for a battle.
Early on, their nerves were showing. They stumbled through most of the first half after not having played a game in almost 2 weeks. They went into halftime down a couple of points.
However, the second half was a different story. Though it was the same back and forth affair, the Lady Lions looked much more like themselves. Avery Reichart, the Lady Lions leading scorer all year, came through when they needed her the most. She hit a game tying three to send the Lady Lions into Overtime with the Lady Cougars
In overtime, the lady lions kept their composure and a late layup provided the final margin of victory as all of the players, fans, and coaches leaped ecstatically at the prospect of what they had just accomplished.
They finish their season 11-0 and complete one of the best seasons by a Lions program.
What a season. What a group of girls.
Congrats Lady Lions!
