DuBois Lady Lions Grab Conference Win

We played a team that was much improved over last year and we were happy to start the conference schedule with a win," stated DuBois coach Pat Lewis.
The Lady Lions were lead in double figures by Hope Bridge (Punxsutawney) as she scored a career high of 24 points and Kristen Williams (Eisenhower) who connected for 10 points.
