Versailles 8th Grade Boys & Girls

On Saturday, January 23rd the 8th grade girl's basketball team traveled to Miami East to take on a talented Viking team. Tough post defense held their big girs to 8 points. Neither the Vikings 1-2-2 zone defense nor their man defense was enough to slow down the young Tigers. Executing on offense and hitting some key outside shots led the Tigers to a 43-36 victory.

The leading scorer for the Tigers was Kayla McEldowney with 20. Other scorers included Emily Harman-12, Courtney Prenger-4, Amanda Winner- 3, Brooke Pothast-2 and Taylor Barga-2. With Saturday's victory, the 8th Grade girls have raised their record to 8-1 on the season and will now begin a stretch of 4 games over the next 8 days.
