The coaches and players in the Grand Saline athletic program participated in more than just a simple basketball game Jan. 20, hosting a ceremony to honor the work and sacrifice of first responders prior to play against Kemp.
Stats and information about the Lady Indians program were not immediately available as of press time.
In the varsity boys game, Grand Saline couldn’t maintain early momentum en route to a 70-47 loss to Kemp. Grand Saline took an early lead on the Yellowjackets, building up an 8-2 lead in the early stages of the first quarter. Kemp rallied back, however, embarking on a 16-4 run to take an 18-14 lead.
Kemp continued to play well in the second quarter, continuing an impressive stretch to take a 38-22 lead into halftime.
Play in the second half would be much more competitive between the two teams as Kemp narrowly outscored Grand Saline 14-12 in the third quarter and 18-13 in the fourth quarter to record a 70-47 win.
