Injuries Derail Lady Bulldogs Quest for Fisher Classic Title
Early injuries knocked two Swanton starters out of the game, guard Jayden Hendricks and leading scorer Frankie Nelson, as the Lady Bulldogs dropped a 31-20 decision to the Leipsic Lady Vikings in the championship game of the Bob Fisher Holiday Classic on Tuesday evening. Hendricks sustained her injury late in the first quarter and Nelson went out at the 5:16 mark of the second quarter. Swanton played well for the rest of the contest, keeping the score relatively close, but were unable to make up for the loss in offense typically provided by Nelson and Hendricks.
The Lady Bulldogs earned their trip to the finals with a convincing 42-16 victory over the Fayette Lady Eagles. They opened the game with a 15-0 run and were never threatened after that. Frankie Nelson led all scorers with 15 points. Katie Floyd had six points and Jayden Hendricks and Emma Crow scored four each.
