Lady Blues go 2-2 at Brock
The Lady Blues participated in their first basketball tournament since the 2019-2020 season last weekend when they participated in the Brock tournament Nov. 18-20. This gave the team their first opportunity to play several games in a short amount of time against opponents they won’t typically see on their schedule. The Lady Blues played games against 4A No. 3 Argyle (Thursday), Aledo (Friday), Trimble Tech (Friday) and Nolan Catholic (Saturday). The Lady Blues finished the tournament with a 2-2 record for the weekend.

The Lady Blues led for a majority of the opening five minutes of the game. Kate Gober led the scoring effort for the Lady Blues.

She gave her team the last lead of the game with a 3-pointer with three minutes left in the first quarter. The Lady Blues could only score one more basket in the half, a score by Hannah Williams at the 6:26 mark of the second quarter.
