The Lady Lions lost a Southern Hills Athletic Conference game at Peebles, 48-37, on Feb. 9, but have since rebounded with non-conference wins over Westfall, 49-18, and against Oak Hill on Monday, 51-31.

The Lady Lions’ other two loses came to Eastern Brown, currently ranked No. 7 in Division III. On Dec. 16, Eastern beat Fairfield in Leesburg, 54-42, and on Jan. 20 the Lady Lions lost at Eastern Brown High School, 56-38.
