In District 2-3A girls basketball tournament action, the Lady Braves of SFIS earned a huge win Wednesday night against the Lady Horsemen of St. Micheal’s High School 48-45.

SFIS fought back to get within 9 points going into halftime down 27-18.

The second half had the Pueblo Pavilion crowd on the edge of their seats as they watched the Lady Braves come all the way back and take the lead late in the 4th quarter. At the end of regulation, the Lady Braves came out on top 48-45.

With the win, the Lady Braves have earned themselves another game and advance to take on the Lady Cardinals of Robertson High School. SFIS travels to Robertson tonight to play the higher seeded Lady Cardinals.
