Plattsburg girls shake up KCI Conference
Last year, the Lady Tigers managed to finish ahead of Lawson in the conference standings, placing second with a 4-2 record. But they were unable to upend the Lady Cardinals in their conference match-up.
Sophomore Jackie Graham and senior DJ Ward combined for 45 of Plattsburg's 57 points on the night. Graham scored 23 while pulling in seven rebounds and four steals, while Ward notched a double-double by scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 boards. Senior Marissa Hall scored five and had six assists, while fellow senior Tatum Hannah had five points, six rebounds and three assists.
This will place added emphasis on the Lady Tigers' game against bitter rival Lathrop on February 18, as the two squads have emerged as the front runners in the KCI Conference.
