Opening week was quite a busy one for the Lady Musketeers. On Monday, Nov. 18, Red Bud went up against the Trico Pioneers in the Sparta Tournament. Trico had possession to start the game off and the Musketeers were on the defensive end.
Throughout the first quarter, 15 points were scored by Red Bud. Claire Grohmann and Meredith Whelan scored four points each. Chloe Wild and Sami Lucht made a two-pointer each and Olivia Carle sank a shot from behind the three-point arc. The score was 15-10 by the end of the quarter, with the Musketeers on top.
A decent start can quickly go downhill, and it did. The Musketeers went zero for four from the free throw line and did not score any points. Trico took advantage of this and added another 12 points to the board. The score as the girls went into the locker room at halftime was 15-22.
