Six different Ladycats made three pointers as the team buried ten three’s for the game. Logan Mittie scored 24, Alana Martin added 21 and Mallory Powell added 16. The 21 points for Martin were her season high.

Aledo Youth Basketball Games Cancelled Saturday

February 3, 2011 by Steve Keck

Message from Aledo Youth League Board

All games scheduled for this Saturday are cancelled due to the icy weather.

There are a number of safety issues outside of our roadways that factored into this including (1) all AISD campuses have had their heat turned off to save energy and gyms are freezing cold (2) all parking lots are like ice rinks (3) walkways to and from the gyms are extremely dangerous and have not been cleared.

Forecast is saying by noon on Saturday we should finally be above freezing but in all likelihood it will take several more hours before the majority of the ice is melted and half of our games on Saturday are before noon.

Practices will resume on Monday 2/7/11 at the regularly scheduled times and dates for each team respectively.
