Houston eighth grader Kylee Elmore uses a pick from teammate Megan Silveus, left, in the first half Thursday.

Chloe Morning scored 10 points and Sarah Kelley added nine as the Houston seventh grade girls completed their season last Thursday with a 27-5 romp of Mountain Grove.

Houston led 11-2 at the half and by 20 points entering the fourth quarter.

The Lady Tigers finished with a 12-3 record, including a first-place finish at the Liberty Tournament.

“These kids play hard,” Houston coach John Jordan said. “I am looking forward to having them back.”

Eighth grade: Megan Silveus and Kylee Elmore scored six points apiece in the Lady Tigers’ 22-16 season-ending loss Thursday to Mountain Grove.

Nora Dixon added four points for the Lady Tigers.

“We didn’t finish the year winning as many games as we would have liked, but I was proud of the kids,” Jordan said. “I never thought we gave up under any circumstance. I look forward to seeing their progress in high school.”
