Step I: opener success

Against No. 6-seeded Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team gave a dominant performance while picking up their 19th win of the season by a 71-49 score in their last game of the season on the home court. Making it even more exciting was that the game was played in front of a packed house!
