BONIFAY — Both varsity and junior varsity Holmes County High School Lady Blue Devils defeated the Lady Gators of Baker High School in high school basketball on Monday night.

“The Lady Devils have played a solid defense so far and shot the three pretty well,” said Miles. “We are very small so we have to use our speed and quickness on defense to create scoring opportunities. Our five seniors have played really well thus far and have shown quality leadership skills.”



He said that leadership is the key.



“Leadership from experienced players tends to make everything run smoother and it reveals to our younger players what is expected,” said Miles. “As long as we play hard, smart and together we will be competitive on most nights and we will always hope for a little luck to assist us along the way.”



Their next game is an away game against Sneads High School at 4 p.m. on Nov. 19.
