    I was at the game on Monday at that Ariel Bursey is the real deal!! She has a D1 future ahead of her, but the Lady Cats let her get her points while shutting the rest of her team down! Great team effort by the Lady Cats after the 2-18 shooting start to begin the game!!! Lets keep it up vs Overhills tomorrow @ home!!!
