ORLEANS–Fans in Ranger Country were treated to arguably the best basketball game that the Lake Region girls have played this season as the Lady Rangers defeated the top-seeded, undefeated BFA Fairfax Bullets 48-43 on Monday night.
"We played great," said coach Mark Tinker. "We got contributions from a lot of players, rotating in a lot of kids, and I thought everybody made significant contributions."
The team has been trending upwards since their game against Enosburg, something the coach expanded on after the game.
"The kids have been playing great the last two times out and I think it is behind our D as we are finally playing Lady Ranger defense and that's creating things for us and building confidence within ourselves."
Kayla Baczewski matched her jersey number with a game-high twenty-one points for BFA while Tyrah Urie led the Ranges with sixteen.
The JV girls also picked up a win on Monday, coming out on top of a one-sided 41-13 contest.
Standing at 9-2, Lake Region will host Richford on Thursday, looking to get in to double digits in the win column. Tip-off is at 7:00.
