The Lady Bulldogs JV squad suffered a thirty point loss to Jordan at home last Friday. The team is young, and inexperience showed as they finished with twice as many turnovers (31) as points (15). Kendall Kittelmann led the way offensively with five points.

The varsity girls were down three seniors against Jordan; sisters Hannah and Heather LaBree were out of town and Whitney Kittelmann is out with an injury. The girls battled back from an early deficit with a big third quarter en route to a 9 point win.

A balanced offensive attack saw nine Bulldogs score in the contest. As a team, CCHS shot 15-28 (54 percent) on free throws, 12-45 (27 percent) on two-point field goals and 4-17 (24 percent) on threes. They out-rebounded Jordan 33-25 and had five fewer turnovers. Ella Owen led the way with 13 points. Codi Melton finished with 8 rebounds.
