The Lady Mt’neers had a tough contest last week, as they took on a very good Seneca squad. Seneca brought in a fantastic sister duo of Aliyah and Hazely Grotjohn who has been lighting up the area all season long. Those two alone got Seneca up early on as they combined for 22 of the Lady Indians 24 points at the half. Cameryn Cassity and Allie Schubert tried to keep the Lady Mt’neers in the game, but the Grotjohns proved to be too much, combining for 40 points, and beating Mt. Vernon 50-35.
However, the Lady Mt’neers did rebound with a win Thursday over a pesky Monett Lady Cubs team.
The win and loss moves Mt. Vernon to 8-7 overall, after starting the season 0-4. They will now have the week off as the NEO tournament in Oklahoma, in which they were slated to play, has been canceled due to COVID concerns.
The boys lost a pair of games last week against two of the best teams in the area in Hollister and Strafford. Against Hollister, Mt. Vernon fell 49-46; and against Strafford 66-55. The team moves to 0-13 on the year and looks to get their first win of the season in the Stockton Tournament that tipped off Tuesday against Lockwood. They will be back in action Friday at Stockton.
