February 11, 2015

LIBERAL, Kan. — Sydney Hein and Brooke Arledge each scored in double-figures to lead the Guymon Lady Tigers to a 46-30 win over Liberal Tuesday night, breaking a 2-game skid.

Guymon shot the ball well, a drastic change from the Elk City loss last Saturday, and jumped to a 14-2 lead after the first quarter.
