The Carterville Lady Lions rolled through the first three games of the 2017 Rangerette Christmas Classic at Benton High School. In the first game the Lions beat Union County HS 55-14 and in game two knocked off the Christopher Lady Bearcats 66-32.
Friday night the Lions found themselves taking on the number one team in Class 2A, the Lady Bulldogs from Harrisburg.
The Lions were within two with just under three minutes to play, but the Bulldogs put them away late in the 65-54 win to earn the Rangerette Christmas Classic Championship.
Abby Crain and Jeniah Thompson each were selected to the All-Tourney team.
Tuesday night the Lady Lions hit the road for a SIRR conference matchup at Pinckneyville.
Congratulations to Matt Crain and the Lady Lions on a great tourney at Benton.
