Lady Rangers Win the War Hill Invitational Tournament


Congratulations to the Fideles Lady Rangers on winning the War Hill Invitational Tournament this week! The team turned in consistently strong performances through the tournament, going 4-0 and rolling through their first three games by margins of 17, 23, and 33 points. In their final game the girls faced the also undefeated Cross Athletics Lady Knights. The Rangers started slow against a tough, but undersized Knights team, falling behind by 7 points late in the third quarter. A strong fourth quarter rally put the Rangers up by 8 with seconds remaining, and they held on for a 43-38 win as Cross closed out the scoring with a last-second 3 pointer.
