Lady Pioneers lose to Red Hill, 38-22
Offensive struggles put Palestine-Hutsonville's girls' basketball team in a hole they could not climb out of Monday night (Dec. 2).

The Lady Pioneers saw their modest two-game winning streak come to an end following a 38-22 loss to Red Hill in Palestine.

"We weren't very aggressive tonight," PHS-HHS head coach Travis Blank said. "Red Hill did a good job on defense and put us on our heels. When we were patient, we did a good job with the offense, but we also missed way too many easy shots and free throws."
