Gordon Lee Trojans

The first Sweet 16 appearance for the Gordon Lee Lady Trojans in five years will be as far as they will go this season.

Playing on the road at No. 3-seeded Marion County, the No. 19-seeded Lady Trojans fell behind early and could never climb out of the hole as their 2017-2018 campaign came to a close with a 63-45 loss.

Marion County (23-5) stormed out to a 23-5 lead after the first period and increased its lead to 45-16 at the break.

Abby Dalton would connect on four 3-pointers in the third as Gordon Lee (16-12) pulled to within striking distance, 51-38, to start the final period. But that would be as close as the Navy-and-White would get.

Dalton had one of the best scoring nights of her career in her final game as the senior made seven 3-pointers and finished with 25 points. Faith Alexander added eight points, followed by Gracie O'Neal with six and Gracey Kruse with three.

Emma Minghini's two points and Kirbie Bradley's one rounded out the scoring.
