This year the Lady Indians appeared at the the Southern B Divisional tournament for the first time in nine years.

Head Coach McCormick is pleased with how his girls came together as a team this season.

“It’s the first time the Lodge Grass Lady Indians made it out of Districts, I’m proud of my team,” he said.

The Lady Indians fought hard in their first game against Big Timber and were leading up until midway through the final quarter.

Playing intense defense and executing offensive play, they fell to a determined Big Timber Team.

During the third quarter, the Lady Cougars slowly crept the lead to within 5 points, holding the Lady Indians to just 4 points scored.
