The night started with the Leopards recognizing Allison Hubble, Gabby Ornelas, Ashleigh Tyler, and Grayson DuPuy for everything they have accomplished as a member of the Lovejoy Basketball Program. The Leopards wanted to make sure that all of the seniors walked off of the Lovejoy floor for the last time as winners as they jumped out to a 28-12 lead in the first half. Lovejoy cruised in the second half and came away with a 54-37 victory. Lovejoy was led in scoring by Meredith Ehlmann 11 points, Bethany Smith 9 points, Ireland Miller 8 points, Allison Hubble 6 points, Carsen McFadden 6 points, Kaylee Rekieta 5 points, Taylor Meixelsperger 4 points, Kim Lyne 3 points, Autumn Purcell 1 point, and Tori Hanson 1 point. Other statistical leaders were Ehlmann and McFadden 8 rebounds apiece, Rekieta 6 steals and 2 blocks, McFadden 3 assists, Hubble and Smith 1 charge apiece. The win makes the Leopards 24-8 overall and 9-5 in district. The 9-5 district record gives Lovejoy the number 3 seed out of District 15-5A and a first round matchup vs the number 2 seed out of District 16-5A, Mount Pleasant High School. The bi-district matchup will take place on Monday, February 13th at Rains High School at 7:00pm.
