Bandys got 19 points, 13 steals and 6 assists from freshman Madi Story on their way to a Catawba 2A win over Bunker Hill on Tuesday.

Coach Beth Queen was aware of the time off.

Throw Down: Bears survive poor FT shooting against Trojans to pick up victory

January 19, 2011

The Bears made their free throws when they mattered the most.
Despite making 8-of-21 free throws in the first half, Bunker Hill connected on 8 of 12 attempts in the fourth quarter to pick up the Catawba Valley 2A win over Bandys.
