The Russellville Lady Indians hosted Crocker Thursday, where the varsity girls suffered a 60-56 loss.
"Every game is a learning experience," Russellville Coach David Volkart said. "We didn't do a very good job in a lot of areas. Little things like executing, finishing shots and making free throws win games. We struggled in those areas late in the fourth quarter. We will turn this into a positive and get better from it."
Hannah Campbell led Russellville with 21 points, followed by Amber Duncan with 12 and Kennedy Volkart with 10.
Russellville (12-4 ) will play at North Callaway Thursday, beginning with the JV game at 6 p.m.
