The Ladies contined their undefeated second half of the 2018-2019 season by pulling out a close win against rival Lake Minneola. This game was highlighted by some clutch free throw shooting by Junior point guard Christine VanMarter. Although they were her only points they proved to be the most important as she made both of her final two free throws to extend the lead to two possessions with only seconds left in the game. Jaeda Logan contributed 13 points and 8 rebounds despite some early foul trouble. Bailey Carlson played a complete game with 9 points and 10 rebounds while Lateisha Edwards acheived an amazing milestone, scoring her 1000th career point on a free throw early in the 4th quarter. Lateisha finished with 15 points and a career high 18 rebounds.

This district win secured the second seed in the 8A district 5 tournament for the Knights. The district tournament will kick off at host Lake Minneola High School on Monday February 4th, with the Ladies facing the 7th seed East River Falcons.
