Jessica Rediker.  (Note: Two key E-town players 5-7 So. Jenna Goblirsch and 5-11 Fr. Alex Jones missed tonight’s game due to injuries.)  Lexington Catholic coach Greg Todd countered with 5-10 So. Natalie Novosel, 5-7 So. Briana Green, 6-0 Sr. Anaris Sickles, 5-7 Jr. Keyla Snowden, and 5-8 Sr. Nikki Davis.  (Note: 6-0 Fr. Malik Stevenson, a valuable inside performer for LexCath, was unavailable for the game due to a wrist injury. The drama continued tonight on senior night as a result of a sprinkler system earlier soaking the gymnasium floor and forcing a move of the game to the Alumni Gym).
