On Jan. 8, the girls basketball team took the long trip to Liberal and lost 42-26.

In the first quarter, the Indians were able to keep Liberal within reach while leading four times, but Hays High finished the first quarter behind, 13-10.

The lady Indians never led in the second quarter and went into halftime trailing the Redskins, 23-14.

In the third quarter, the lady Indians trailed, bringing the score to 27-20, before a fourth-quarter 13-0 run from Liberal set the lady Indians behind even more.

The Indians move to 1-5 on the season and 0-2 in conference play. They will travel to Great Bend on Jan. 12 to take on the Panthers in hopes of bettering their record.
