News-Review Asst. Editor

The Three Lakes Lady Jays basketball team traveled to Elcho last Thursday to take on the Hornets, coming away with a 66-56 win.

Elcho was tied for first place in the Northern Lakes Conference (NLC), and the Lady Jays hadn’t played a game in 10 days, according to coach Michele Brown.

We hadn’t played since the Holiday Tournament in Al­mond-Bancroft, plus we had only had a handful of practices in that 10-day span, so I wasn’t sure exactly how the girls would perform,” she said.

Three Lakes came out strong, applying full-court pressure and going on an 8-0 run to start the game.
