The Lady Cougars closed out their regular season with a conference win over South Bend Riley 53-39. The team started off the first quarter shooting well from outside the arc with a pair of first quarter triples from Freshman Morgan White and another from Senior Jordan Winters. The first half was all Cougars as they went into halftime with a comfortable 36-19 lead. The Lady Wildcats did their best to claw back but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Cougars remained in control throughout the second half. There was very balanced scoring for the Lady Cougars but Senior Jordan Winters lead the team with 11 points. Junior Taylor Nelson chipped in 10 points, Sophomore Jaiden Winters had 9 points, Freshman Morgan White and Senior Allison Pavlick both had 8 points, and Junior Maddie McSurley had 5 points. Next up the Cougars will travel to South Bend St. Joseph to take on South Bend Washington in Sectional action. Tip off is set for 6pm.
