Another rough week for the West Central Blue Devils girls’ basketball team was compounded by the loss of leading scorer Kenzie Squires for the remainder of the season.

Squires sprained her ankle early in the season, and she has played through some pain since the injury. However, after last week’s games, she went to see a doctor after the pain continued to get worse after games. After examining her ankle, the doctor recommended shutting her down for the rest of the season.

The North Fayette Valley bowling team made its first-ever road trip Friday, facing Independence on the Mustangs’ home alley.

The boys lost, 2568-2335, and the girls were defeated, 2053-1563.

“We had some nerves for a first road game,” admitted head coach Chris DeBack. “We also had some early problems with the lanes since the returns in Independence go all the way to the line and our long leg kicks kept hitting the returns; it sort of threw off our concentration,” DeBack explained.
