The Mustangs competed in three close, competitive games this past week. The first against Naperville Central came down to a close second half, resulting in a narrow loss of 71-57. Later in the week, the Mustangs not only conquered the Waubonsie Warriors 48-27, but the entire women’s basketball program won their games, completely sweeping away the Warriors. Finally, the week ended on a bit of a sour note after playing Lake Park. Although the game was well played and incredibly close, Lake Park pulled through, beating the Mustangs.
