After a solid season opener the Crusader girls hit the road the next morning to head to the coast for a match-up with the Bandon Tigers. In a reversal of the night before, St. Mary’s came out applying relentless pressure, jumped out to an early 17-6 lead and never looked back. It was a total team effort with eleven players seeing playing time and eight of those players finding the scoring column, including sophomore wing Madi Andrews and freshman guard Paige Rajagopal who scored their first varsity points in a Crusader uniform. The St. Mary’s girls will next be in action against former SCL league opponent Rogue River on Friday 12/7 in the first round of the Phoenix HS Tournament.
