The up and down start for the Lady Friar basketball team has seen the girls alternate wins and losses through the first two weeks of the season.

Bishop Lynch (4-3) split four games last weekend at the Colleyville Heritage Tipoff Classic, opening with a loss to Crowley in a game that saw the Lady Friars make just 2-of-20 shots from long range.

That sent the team to the consolation bracket where they trounced Carrollton Creekview (79-38) and eased by Arlington Lamar (57-43) to set up a matchup with Keller Timber Creek in the consolation final.

Timber Creek rallied in the second half to send the game to overtime and won by a 60-55 count. Most recently, the Lady Friars earned an 83-36 blowout win at Highland Park last night.

Through the first seven games of the season, Endyia Rogers has paced the team with 18.1 points per game, followed closely by fellow junior Nyah Green (17.0). Natalie Lark, Paige Bradley and Jackie Walker are each averaging at least 5.3 points per game.

The Lady Friars are off until next Tuesday, Nov. 21, when they play at home for just the second time against McKinney at 6 p.m.
