    Page moves to 16-5 (7-0). 8 game winning streak. Looking to make that 9 against Grimsley in Mac Morris Gymnasium. They are trying to go 10-0 in the conference for the regular season and hopefully sweep the Metro tourney too. #1 seed in playoffs or bust.

    The girls score for NG/Dudley game was 72-47. NG was better this time around against the quicker dudley squad. They outscored Dudley 14-8 in the 3rd qtr. Kudos to the girls for fighting til the end.
