The Roberto Clemente Community Academy Lady Wildcats were back in action last Friday against the Lady Spartans of Orr Academy High School, one of our rival Chicago Public Schools. Orr Academy came into the game with a 0-5 record. They made a strong showing but lost to the Lady Wildcats 33 to 19. This 14-point win made it the 4th win that the Lady Wildcats beat their opponent by more than 10 points.
Keara Baker stated, ”It was a great win for the wildcats and Orr did a great job of showing great sportsmanship.” Jazlyn Torres said, “It was a pretty easy win. We had difficulty in the first half working as team but we pulled through the second half and got the WIN.”
Despite the positive energy, the Lady Wildcats were defeated several days later by the Disney 2 Titans by two points. Jazlyn Torres stated, “It was a good game. We had some decent competition and even though we had some problems with the refs, we played through. We lost by 3 points but still we played like we needed to.”
