·        As the Tale of Two Cities cites; "It was the best of times and it was the worst of times', accurately describes the Sr. Girls Tournament at Fanshawe College. The girls stormed out and defeated Korah by 20 points and were active on the offensive and defensive end. However, the girls put up a less than courageous effort and were soundly defeated by an inferior team their next game. The last game of the weekend feature a weak effort for three quarters, followed by an incredible forth quarter in which they won 22 to 5. Unfortunately, they lost by 4. A very educational weekend it was. Practice tonight at 2:30.
