Lady Trojans, Wolves repeat at Holiday Clash

December 30, 2011

Third time’s the charm — at least in the case of the ninth annual Peoples Bank Holiday Clash.

Bandys scored 29 points in the first quarter, and maintained at least a 10-point lead against North Lincoln for most of the game on its way to a third-straight girls title at the Clash.

“When I think about our tournament overall, I think it’s a team effort,” said Lady Trojans coach Beth Queen. “When you look at our box score, we’ve been very balanced as far as points, steals and assists. It’s been a very balanced attack. That’s what has made me very happy about this tournament.”
