Lady Lions Spring up on Valley
   Loogootee took to the road on Tuesday night with plans to continue their winning streak against the Springs Valley Lady Blackhawks.  With a 48-30 victory, the Lady Lions have now taken the past four encounters in the annual season series.  The outcome was certainly in doubt after a quarter and a half of play; however, as a 5-5 tie at the end of one frame had actually turned into a 9-7 host lead with around four minutes remaining before intermission.  From there, Tia Pennington, Taylor Walker, and Waynessa Burch went to work on the offensive end as all three popped for four points to give their teammates a 19-10 lift at the break.  
  The third stanza was another Lion onslaught as they racked up 16 markers to take a commanding 35-19 spread with eight minutes to go.  Pennington scored two more hoops as did Kelci Mann while Walker drained trey number two and three on the evening.  Wynter Wagoner tallied seven of her team-high 12 points in the final frame as Coach Dave Smith was able to utilize all of his personnel in the last few minutes of the contest.  Balance was a key as Pennington and Walker both recorded 11 and Mann 10 to put four in double figures while Burch registered 4.  
  Meanwhile, Springs Valley received 13 points from senior Dianna Stout.  
  Loogootee managed just 7-13 charity tosses in the final eight minutes; their overall performance was 12-19 as they hit 5-6 in the second.  Through seven games, the Lady Lions are 5-2 with losses to tough opponents in Forest Park and Barr-Reeve.  Their next game is at home on Saturday, December 12, at 1 p.m. against Washington Catholic.
