With an extremely young roster, any wins early in the season will surely help later on.


The London girls basketball team earned its first victory of the season Wednesday, Dec. 4, with a hard fought 37-30 triumph over visiting Northeastern.


Mackenzie Minner led the way offensively for London, scoring 11 points. Megan Cox also reached double figures with 10 points.


With the victory London improved its record to 1-3. The team was scheduled to play its first Mid-State League Ohio Division game against host Grandview Friday, Dec. 6. But weather forced that game to be moved to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.
