Lady Comets Defeat Flora, Move On To Regional Championships

The Lady Comets basketball team defeated Flora 63-51 in Tuesday night’s Regional semi-finals. Coach Paul Thies told us the girls played extremely well.

“I thought we did a good job defending them early, and we kind of cruised to a victory, thank goodness,” Thies said. “Hopefully we can get a good crowd out to Vandalia Thursday evening. Come out and support the Lady Comets. The girls are definitely going to give everything we’ve got to try to bring home a regional championship.”

The Lady Comets will face the Teutopolis Wooden Shoes basketball team tonight in Vandalia immediately following the 3-point contest, which begins at 5:30 p.m. You can hear the game live on WGEL 101.7 FM or streaming online at www.wgel.com.
