The AVCTL DIV III Augusta Orioles were guests of the Crusaders Friday evening out at WHS in non-league play. Proving to be spoilers to some extent, the Orioles won 4 out of 5 games at the Homecoming themed occasion.Congrats to the Girls JV squad for pulling down a convincing 53-31 victory over the JV Orioles and advancing their season record to 7-2 overall. The 22 pt win was the largest spread on the evening but the only spread with the teams in red on top.
The Girls and the Boys go their separate ways next weekwith state-wide mid-season tournaments going on for the boys. Our Lady Crusader Varsity and JV squads will travel to Winfield alone on Tuesday (Jan. 16th) for action vs the Lady Vikings. The start times are a little different than usual, the JV Girls will play at 5PM, the Varsity at 6:30PM. The Varsity Boys head west to Chaparral HS for the Roadrunner Classic beginning Thursday. The Crusaders will open against Clearwater, start time 8PM. BRACKET
