Lady Giants go out fighting

By Greg Jones
 
If you were not able to attend the bi-district playoff game between the Lady Giants and the Lady Spartans in Columbia last Friday night, then you unfortunately missed a great high school basketball game.

Both teams were looking to improve their power rating so they could get a better playoff seed. It was a great game throughout as the biggest lead by either team was 6 and the lead switched back and forth.
