Lima, OH – The Lady Barons were a little rusty as they fell behind by 25 in the first half of their ORCC home opener versus OU Chillicothe. However, they showed some real poise as they came out strong in the 2nd half playing inspired defense to help them cut the lead to only 13 at one point. However, the big early lead by the Hilltoppers proved to be too much as the game wore on with the Lady Barons falling in the end by the score of 48 to 68.
Leading the way for the Barons was Jessica Lehman (Pandora-Gilboa) with 17 points for the day while knocking down 3 three pointers for the game. Kayla Doepker (Lima Central Catholic) added nine, while six other Barons also scored.
The loss drops the Barons record to 0 and 2 overall and in ORCC play.
The Barons are home on December 13th as they host nearby rival Wright State Lake at 5pm. Come out and support the Barons. Admission is free to all students, faculty, and staff of Ohio State Lima and Rhodes State College.
