She's confident when she is out there and is a big presence."North Country got some good news this week as it looks like Anna Bingham will return from injury on Friday for the Falcons regular season finale.Tip-off is slated for 6:30.Make it Two in a Row for UCACABOT–The UCA girls made it two in a row with their 34-31 win over Cabot on Tuesday."It was an all out team effort," said coach Sarah Roy.Hannah Piette led the team with ten points, followed by Laura Libby with seven, Christina Maxwell’s six, Sydney Whipple with four, and Whitney Carter had three.Olivia Foster and Kathryn Daigle each contributed two points.The Crusaders have one game left, and will look to make it three in a row when they square off against Cabot once again on March third.Rangers Put Out Rockets in FinaleRICHFORD – The Lady Rangers took to the road Tuesday night to face off against the Richford Rockets.Kylie Atwood tallied 13 points, while Caylin Gallup chipped in 12 to help the blue and white run away with a 48-28 victory.Joannah Sherrer and Erika Snyder each had 6 to pace the Rockets.With the win, Lake Region finishes the season with a record of 11-9.
