Lawrence High’s girls basketball team struggled on the offensive end in its 39-20 home loss to Olathe Northwest Tuesday night at LHS.
The Lions (1-5) got down early, but never fully went away. They fought hard before ultimately running out of gas in the second half when they went scoreless in the third quarter.
“We battled and played our tails off,” LHS head coach Jeff Dickson said. “We got down big early and really fought back. I am so proud of our kids and how hard they played.”
Dickson was especially proud of junior Layla Harjo for providing strong leadership. Harjo led the Lions with 6 points in the loss. Dickson also noted that Serenity Keo played with a lot of effort. She finished with four points and managed to draw three charges.
“We have to continue to work hard each day and get stronger and get tougher,” Dickson said. “I know we can do it and I know that we will do it.”
Lawrence will play host to Mill Valley at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
