When the Van-Far varsity girls basketball team took the court at the Madison Tournament last Wednesday against Salisbury, its head wasn't in the game and it showed.

That left the Lady Indians with just one last chance for redemption when it came to this event and it was last Friday against the Salibury JV, which this squad took full advantage of to the tune of 49-26.

"(Last) week was not our best. We didn't handle the ball well or play as a team (last) Wednesday against Salisbury," said coach Kelly Borchert. "(Last) Friday we started to get back to the team we were before Christmas Break. We moved the ball well and found ways to score besides the three-pointer. Our win Friday was definitely a team effort."

Stepping up in this contest for Van-Far was Jordan Garner with 13 points, three rebounds one steal and an assist, Jayle Jennings had 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal and Reaghan Case was good for eight points, three boards, three assists and a steal. Alivia Graddy also got in on the good times for the Lady Indians with seven points, two rebounds and two assists, Panna Connaway and Gina Clausen added four points each and Annalynn Culwell and Kenzie Kurz posted an assist apiece.

Van-Far was at Elsberry on Jan. 8 and hosts South Shelby on Jan. 9.
