Girls Basketball In a matchup of two teams that reside less than a mile apart from each other, the Angels of St. Catherine’s were able to defeat the Park Panthers on Tuesday night by a score of 72-48.

Laila Collier-White led the team with 25 points while Kennedee Clark had 24 and Aniyah Price had 10. Clark was also able to grab 14 rebounds while Collier-White was able to snag 11 steals. Friday night the Angels girls basketball team opened up Metro Classic Conference play as they hosted the Kenosha St. Joseph Lancers. Regulation time wasn’t enough as the Angels and Lancers were knotted up at 45 when the second half whistle blew. Unfortunately the Angels ran into foul trouble late and the Lancers outscored them 15-12 in OT as the Angels lost their first game of the year 60-57. Laila Collier-White led the team with 16 points, Kennedee Clark had 13 points and 9 rebounds while Arianna Green had 9 points and 10 rebounds.
