The Lakota East girls basketball team traveled up to Fairborn Thursday night, January 3rd looking to get a win.
The Thunderhawks were down 13 points at one point, but because of their defensive effort in the second half, they climbed back late in the game down 1 with 8 seconds left and a chance to win the game. Logan Fox drove down the left side of the lane and kicked out for an open 3 for Jordan Stanely in the corner. Stanely’s 3 rimmed out, but Fox was there for the rebound and made a turnaround jumper at the buzzer to win the game for the Hawks! It was a great team effort for an exciting finish!
