On Jan. 6 the Lady Jeffs lost to Aurora 61-27. According to MaxPreps, Jaelle Johnson lead the scoring with 6 points. Sara Huss lead rebounds with a total of 7.
“Aurora was rough, they’re very good very athletic class B school, and I think we were a little tired from the night before,” said Engle- Evans, “We got down 19-0 before we scored and when you dig yourself that big of a hole against that good of a team it’s kind of hard to come back from that.”
