GEN­TRY — The Lady Pioneers picked up two wins and a loss over the hol­i­days in tour­na­ment play against three Mis­souri teams.

On Dec. 27, the Gen­try girls soundly de­feated Mar­i­onville, 42-8. On Dec. 28, they did the same to East New­ton, 5731. But on the 29th, they came up short in play against Wheaton, fall­ing 61-56.

Against East New­ton Jaiden Wil­moth and Emily Toland each scored 12 points. Ariel Nix and Jay­don Jar­na­gan each had five.

The Lady Pioneers scored 10 points in the open­ing quar­ter, 17 in the sec­ond, 10 in the third and 20 in the fi­nal quar­ter for the big win.

Against Wheaton, Jar­na­gan scored 18 points and Nix 17. Randi Jo Bolinger and Wil­moth each had seven, but that wasn’t quite enough for the win.

The Lady Pioneers were sched­uled to travel to Farm­ing­ton on Tues­day, af­ter press time, and will host Prairie Grove on Fri­day for their col­ors day game. The corona­tion cer­e­mony is set for 5:15 p.m. in the gym­na­sium at Gen­try High School, with the boys’ game to start at 6 p.m. and the girls’ game to fol­low.
