The Las Animas Lady Trojans struggled against two strong league foes this week. On Friday night the Lady Trojans hosted the Rocky Ford Lady Meloneers and on Saturday the Lady Trojans traveled to Fowler to face the Lady Grizzlies.
At home on Friday night, the Trojans put up a mighty fight against the Meloneers allowing only 47 points to a team that put 61 up against them last time. Despite their defensive success, offense was still a major struggle for the Lady Trojans for in three of four quarters the Ladies couldn’t score more than 5 points, and finally broke that plane in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Trojans fell 47-21.
Mo Maes led all Lady Trojans with 5 points while Shelby Eck and Julyana Gonzlaes each added 4 and Ally Magana ripped down 13 rebounds in the Lady Trojans’ campaign.
The next night in Fowler, the Ladies had the same struggles from the floor and could only amass 19 points. The Lady Grizzlies won by a margin of 56-19.
This week is Winter Sports week for the Trojans. In addition to some comfy dress- up days, all sports teams will take the floor/mat on Thursday with a final schedule to be determined. The Trojan varsity wrestlers will wrestle against the John Mall Panthers, and then all basketball teams will face the Panthers as well. Games begin at 4:30 p.m. today. The Lady Trojans also host Simla on Saturday and games begin at 2:30 p.m.
