The game against Archie January 21st was a hard fought 35-29 win for our girls and a big win for our program. I was very proud of the heart and effort of the girls and now we put this win behind us and focus on the task at hand which is to take it one game at a time and to get better each and every day in practice and get better each and every game.
Missourians benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,600 men and women in every community across the state. These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts. These men and women are the local school board members of Missouri.
During the week of January 26 - February 1, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of local boards of education during School Board Recognition Week, as proclaimed by Governor Jay Nixon.

In the end, the Bears took the win by 2 points with a final score of 68-70. “The boys did a great job of fighting the entire game and were able to get the game into overtime.
