Seniors Keeley Jones and Brooke Hines, along with the rest of the Mena Ladycats came out strong against the Malvern Lady Leopards. Coach Scott Wright said, “We played hard, but we couldn’t get shots to fall, which puts us under the gun. If we make shots we’re in the game late.” He was proud of the effort given by the Ladycats. They just couldn’t get started and were down 20 to 10 at halftime. In the third quarter the Ladycats outscored the Leopards, but were still down 28 to 19. Malvern ended up winning the game 43 to 26. Grace Wagner scored 8 points and Reagan Sikes scored 6 points. They were great contributions for the Ladycats, not only in this game but also this season. Keeley Jones was the point guard for the Ladycats this season leading the plays every game. Brooke Hines was the leading scorer for the season. Although the Ladycats did not have the greatest record, they played with a lot of heart giving their all everyday in practice and in games.
