Girls basketball loses opener

The high school girls basketball team lost its home opener to Bishop Ready by a final score of 46–27 on Thursday, Dec. 2. The Lady Bulldogs kept pace with the visitors early before Bishop Ready widened the score by the half. Despite tough defense and a spirited rally in the fourth quarter, Bishop Ready’s full court press was too difficult for Yellow Springs to break and the team struggled to make up the point difference. The Lady Bulldogs were led by Alex Beer, who had nine points, Maryah Martin with six points, Brianna Ayers with five points and Angela Allen with four points.

On Monday, the Yellow Springs High School girls basketball team traveled to Emmanuel Christian, losing 64–48 to stay winless this season at 0–3. Lady Bulldog Maryah Martin had a standout performance, with 25 points, six rebounds and three steals on the evening. Alex Beer contributed 11 points and Lois Miller four points along with five rebounds and four assists.

Their next game is Friday, Dec. 10, at Middletown Christian at 6 p.m.
