            MOUNDRIDGE – Last Monday, the Moundridge Middle School girl basketball team opened their 2022 season with a convincing 39-7 win at home over visiting Elyria Christian.

            The Junior Lady Wildcats are looking to defend their 2021-22 league championship when they went unbeaten in Heart of America League games.

            In the powerful 32-point victory over Elyria, Moundridge was led by the Hecox twins, Hattie and Halle who scored 14 and 12 points, respectively.

            The Junior Lady Wildcats will be back on the competitive court on Monday, November 21 when they host cross-county rival Inman. Moundridge and Inman have history as the Junior Lady Teutons were the team Moundridge defeated on the road to earn the regular season league championship before losing to Inman in the final possession of the league tournament championship game.
