The Crown Point Lady Bulldogs continued their dominance on Friday, taking a 54-21 win over the Lake Central Indians, putting their season record at 13-0.

To be able to come out here and get a win on our home court, I just couldn’t be prouder of the girls and how they really brought it again on the defensive end which was the start of everything.”
