  • FISHERS - The Lady Royals started off the season with a great win against a tough Ben Davis team.

    The Lady Royals continue to find ways to win games. In a game that points were slim, the Lady Royals fought hard on the defensive end to pull out their first victory of the season. The Lady Royals led most of the game; however, Ben Davis took the lead late. A couple tough defensive stands turned into offensive points and the Royals were back on top. In a game that came down to a few possessions in the final minutes, the Lady Royals were able to withstand the defensive pressure Ben Davis brought.

    Leading Scorers for the Lady Royals were Senior Sydney Parrish with 33 and Jackie Maulucci with 13. Leading rebounders were Parrish with nine and Bailee Poore with seven. 

    The win for the defending class 4A champs gets their season started off with a record of 1-0. The Lady Royals will be back in action on Saturday as they host the Southeastern Shootout. The team will first play Center Grove at 10 a.m.
