The girls added 20 points to their first-half total, led by junior Regan Freland with 15 points, but it wasn’t enough. The Cubs just kept their distance and held off the Mustangs. The PCM girls eventually fell to the Cubs 41-29.

The PCM boys came into the game looking to keep their momentum going from their last win over Greene County. The boys came out hot, making shot after shot. They ended the first half on top by seventeen points. Coming out of the first half, the shots continued to fall. The boys kept the train rolling and cruised to the victory.
