The Lady Crusaders next matchup against Parrott Academy did not serve as much of a test for the Crusaders as in their previous game. HCA's focus on defense throughout the first half led to easy scoring opportunities on the other end of the floor. The Lady Crusaders headed into the half with a 19-5 lead. The Crusaders did not slow down in the second half and continued their success. The balanced attack by the Crusaders allowed them to cruise to a 39-16 victory over Parrott Academy. The Lady Crusaders improved to 10-1 (3-0) on the season with their convincing win over the Patriots. The Varsity women will be back in action on Friday, January 16 as they hit the road to take on Fayetteville Christian School.
