LC hosts Spencer Feb. 28 and travels to Callaway on March 3. The Lady Trojans went 1-2 in Trojan Cup action to finish sixth among eight teams. Tournament action finished Saturday with Lamar falling to Locust Grove 9-0. ’We came out flat against a good team and found ourselves in a hole quickly.

We will work on those over fall break and should be ready to go when we play Spencer Feb. 28,’ coach Wayne Calvert said.
