Meet your champions
The undefeated 7/8th grade Ophir Lady Miners continued their winning streak on Jan. 26 at the Monforton Rural League Tournament, beating Monforton in the morning 37-30. Led by Jessie Bough’s 17 points, the Lady Miners recovered from an early eight-point deficit to outscore Monforton 20-10 in the second half.
The Miners kept it going during the championship match, taking on and besting Anderson later that day, 32-25. This was a balanced offensive attack, with six girls scoring; once more led by Bough who garnered eight points.
These weekend wins brought the 7/8thgrade Lady Miners to a 10-0 record.
