JV team defeats West Central by David Lias Working well together as a team, the VHS JV Basketball Tanagers pulled off an astonishing upset in shooting down the West Central Junior Varsity Trojans 56-33 in girls basketball Oct. 13 at Hartford.
"This game was a good win over a very aggressive and very physical West Central team," said Vermillion JV Coach Kelly Fischbach. "The final score does not show how close and hard fought the game was. We had a very balanced offensive attack, led by our strong post players. Leslie Larson, Sarah Mollet and Melissa Rydell are all three playing very well for us right now."
The Tanager JV jumped in front 14-5 after the opening period, led 25-12 after the second quarter, and then led 37-24 after the third period.
The Vermillion JV improved its season mark to 10-2.
