The Lady Knights were back in action on Monday evening in a 2020 tournament rematch against Cuyahoga Heights High School and would play their best game of the year to revenge last year’s loss. The Knights would jump out to an early 1st quarter lead and never look back until the final buzzer sounded. This Aquinas’ third straight victory and would be the best overall game of the year.

The Knights would be led in scoring by Avery Bussey’s 14 points, while Jo Smith would chip in 9 points respectively. Defensively, Aquinas would be led up to by Meredith Ramsey, Ahnalisa Gibbons, and Haley Overdorf’s tough on the ball defense. The bench would come up with timely buckets as Alana Settles would knock down 2 three’s, Orlasia Hunter would score 4 and grab 5 rebounds, and AJ Overdorf would get 4 points on the evening.

The Knights will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to Minerva.
