Tough season ends for Lady Warriors

February 6, 2012

The Big Pine Lady Warriors ended a rough season Saturday night with a 52-40 loss to the Hi-Lo League-leading Baker Braves.
The Warriors have been in every league game this season, but have had difficulty maintaining momentum through all four quarters.
The loss of Alicia Peterson to injury reduced the team to six players.
“I’m proud of the way we played this game and others throughout the season,” said coach Dave Mettam. “This team’s character is to never quit in the face of adversity. They played tough, with class and good sportsmanship.”
