Leyton's Lady Warrior Girls Basketball team has had a strong season, and sat out the first round of the D2-11 Subdistrict Tournament with a bye, waiting on the winner of the Potter-Dix and Banner County contest on Monday, February 15. The Lady Coyotes had little trouble getting past the winless Lady Wildcats, setting up the finals match on Tuesday, February 16.
Leyton had no trouble beating Potter-Dix's aggressive defense, and quickly opened a 17-to-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. A strong second quarter by Leyton gave them a 32-to-7 lead a the end of the first half, putting the game out of reach. Leyton cruised through the second half to take the 60-to-28 victory.
Leyton next has to travel to neutral site Brady on Friday to match up against the 18-and-7 Parkview Christian Lady Patriots for a District Finals matchup. If they get past the Lady Patriots, the Lady Warriors will have punched their ticket for a State Tournament appearance. The Lady Patriots have no scoring standouts, but play strong defense and have length. They have averaged nearly 21 defensive rebounds per game, 46.5 points per game, and have multiple starters over 5' 10" that will be a challenge for the Lady Warriors in the paint.
