The Lawrence High Lady Lions had a rough week. They had to survive illness, injuries, finals and of course the #2 Ranked Team in Class 5A, The Leavenworth Lady Pioneers who they had not beaten since 2012 when our current seniors were in the 6th grade.
But survive they did overcoming a slow start that saw LHS down by as many as 13 in the first half and not getting the lead until a Chisom Ajekwu bucket with 30 seconds remaining but LHS found a way to pull out a 43-41 Sunflower League victory. The Lady Lions ranked #2 in 6A closed out the 2017 portion of the season 5-0 and 2-0 in the Sunflower League.
Chisom led the way for LHS with 16 points and 14 rebounds, senior E'lease Stafford added 14 points and 9 rebounds and some critical steals late in the game.
The sensational Bobby Nightengale from the LJ World was on the road with us and filed this report:
