Lady Bears advance in districts
With just two points separating the two (16-14) at the half, Coach Ryan Knoph got a 14-point effort from his girls in the third that put the game out of reach.
Trailing 30-18, Grand Marais’ Elizabeth Scaife scored eight of her game high 16 points in the final quarter, but couldn’t push her team over the top.
