The Hughes Springs Lady Mustangs came to Bulldog Gym on Tuesday for a battle with the Lady Dawgs. Jefferson overcame an early Hughes Springs lead to win the game 36-30.

However, Jefferson had an excellent second quarter, compiling 17 points, while holding Hughes Springs to a mere 6. Both teams put up 7 points in the third, and the Lady Dawgs maintained their lead in the fourth to finish the game 36-30.
