Lady Statesmen close out 2017 with 74-58 GRAC win at Shawnee
It has been a season of streaks thus far for Lincoln Trail College's women's basketball team so far this season.

The Lady Statesmen opened with four straight wins, then lost four games in a row, but have now won their last three following Saturday (Dec. 9)'s 74-59 win at Shawnee Community College in Great Rivers Athletic Conference action.

"A week ago after our tough loss at Olney, we set a goal of winning the next three games of the semester and we accomplished that," LTC head coach Scott Sparks said. "I was a little worried after our emotional win at home Wednesday against a tough Lewis and Clark team that we might fall off a little and struggle today, but we didn't."

• Panthers beat Cisne, 48-34, for 1st win
• Early struggles send Statesmen to 85-48 loss at Shawnee Saturday
• Maroons drop pair of weekend games
• Offense continues to hamper Lady Maroons in 53-25 loss at Newton

'Swamp' draining itself

Donald Trump said he was going to drain the swamp in Washington if elected. I don't know if he's the one draining the swamp of if the "swamp monsters" are doing themselves in.
