The eighth-grade Lady Wolves girls’ basketball team beat the Scotties in Glasgow 48-28 Saturday, Nov. 23, to take the Northeastern Division Tournament championship trophy.

The Lady Wolves had an 8-2 season coming into the tournament, earning them a bye. Payne and the Lady Wolves then beat the Harlem Wildcats 42-19 to clinch a spot in the championship game.
