The Lady Lions knew the Shawnee Heights Lady Thunderbirds, preseason ranked in the Top Five in 5A would be a tough test for their young squad and they found out in a hurry just how tough as SH jumped out to an early double digit lead and then survived a furious comeback by LHS to hold on and win 70-51.
The loss dropped LHS to 1-2 on the season. In the Freshman game, LHS lost 42-20 and in JV action, the Lady Lions dropped a tough 43-39 decision. All three teams are back in action Monday, Tuesday and Friday with games vs Topeka West, Wyandotte and Free State to finish out the pre-Christmas schedule.
