NMS 8th girls win LEIC tourney
Sports Editor

Championships continue to be collected by Nuttall Middle School teams, with the latest coming courtesy of the NMS eighth grade girls' basketball team.

The Lady Raiders repeated as Little Eastern Illini Conference champions by defeating Paris Mayo in Thursday night (Oct. 31)'s title game, 31-18, at Paris Mayo Middle School.

It was actually the third straight LEIC Tournament title for this group, as they also won the tournament championship last year as seventh graders and they won the seventh grade tournament when they were sixth graders as well.

Robinson was in control throughout, as they jumped out to a 13-5 after one quarter, then extended their advantage to 24-10 at halftime. The Lady Raiders were then outscored 4-2 in the third quarter to make the score 26-14, but responded by outscoring Paris Mayo 5-4 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

Katelyn Jones led NMS (13-1) with nine points, while Marissa Zane and Alexia Zane scored eight points apiece, Callie Dickerson tossed in four and Taylor Blank added two.
