Fast break

Connersville junior Makayla Strong goes in for 2 during the Lady Spartans preseason scrimmage game against Alexandria last Saturday. The Lady Spartans open the regular season tonight against New Palestine at 7:30 pm tonight at the Spartan Bowl.

The Connersville Lady Spartans open the 2022-2023 regular season basketball schedule this evening when they host the New Palestine Lady Dragons at 7:30 p.m. Connersville hosted Alexandria for a preseason scrimmage last Saturday. Following the scrimmage, the Lady Spartan have been working to coalesce as a team and understand new roles and responsibilities after just 2 weeks of practice.

“The last couple of nights we’ve really worked on some of the little things that we need to get better at defensively,” Connersville Head Coach Michelle Harter said. “We played a little fast [against Alexandria]. They were excited to be out there, and we got ourselves off balance.”
