After a great win against Lawrence Middle School on Thursday, the Middle School Tartans basketball team earned the number one seed in the upcoming Mercer County Tournament with an 8–0 record for the season. Eighth grader Caroline Johnson had a season high 20 points while classmate Whizdom Williams controlled the game with her offensive and defensive rebounds. Coach Cortina said, "These girls understand teamwork, sharing the basketball, and working as a unit on the defensive end of the court. It was a close game and everyone contributed in this big victory."
