Our Lady JV Raiders lost Friday night at Chattahoochee 32-27 in a tale of two halves. The first was all Raiders with a score of 18-5 led by Mary Ziegler, Mahima Sangtani and Erica Campbell. However, the second half was just the opposite with a 9-27 score reversal which led to the loss. The second half saw too many turnovers and missed shots, especially at the free throw line.
Erica Campbell played her best game of the year with 8 points and 12 rebounds. Rounding out the scoring was Mahima Sangtani with 6, Mary Ziegler with 5, Georgia Lingerfelt with 3, Lauren Erickson and Abbey Morgan with 2 each and Natalie Camera with 1.
