The Morton Lady Potters’ season kicked off Tuesday night at Normal Community High School, where the Potters showed some fight and determination. Coming back from 12 points down in the 3rd quarter to catch and over take a very good, IHSA Class 4A State ranked, NCHS Lady Iron team 57-52, the Potters showed some early grit. Morton looked like a team that is just beginning to learn how all their pieces work together and no doubt in search of the perfect chemistry, but oh my, do they have some great pieces!
If you missed this great game, never fear, as it was only the first game of the season and the Lady Potters will play 4 more, Friday, Nov. 23rd – Saturday, Nov. 24th, at the PotterDome, at the Morton Thanksgiving Classic. The Tournament field is filled with some great talent and will be a good challenge for the Lady Potters. Teams include United Township (E. Moline), Champaign Central, Bishop McNamara and Peoria Richwoods (defending Class 3A State Champions).
Come out and get a look at the 2018-19 edition of the Morton Lady Potters and see what you think. A great way to see some great holiday basketball, right here, in your favorite gym, the PotterDome!!!
