TERRIL?- The basketball season began Monday evening with the annual Graettinger-Terril Girls Jamboree in Terril. Emmetsburg's Lady E-Hawks met the Raiders of Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire in a two quarter scrimmage in the teams' first competitive outings of the season, and the Lady E-Hawks would take a 14-7 win over the Raider gals in the scrimmage.
The two teams tried several player combinations through the two quarters of action, giving Head Coaches John Kennedy and Corey Boe a chance to see how players interacted under actual game situations, and an opportunity to see how various schemes and plays worked.
In the final tally, Emmetsburg would be paced by senior Paige Naig's 10 point effort, while Jacque Carlson added four points to the tally.
