McLouth girls fall in tourney opener
The McLouth High girls basketball team opened its season with a loss Tuesday at the Marmaton Valley Tournament in Moran.

MHS only scored six first-half points and trailed by 10 at the half before finding more offense in the second half.

Junior guard Terri Stewart led McLouth (0-1) with 16 points. Taylor Pope scored five and Jessie Troupe had four.
The Bulldogs return to Moran on Thursday for their next game in the tournament, a 4 p.m. matchup with Oswego.
