POTTSVILLE â€“ After a rough loss to the Clinton Lady Yellowjackets in the final of the First Service Bank Classic in Clinton almost a week ago, the Bauxite Lady Miners got just what they needed going into the 7-4A Conference season next week. Bauxite defeated the Pottsville Lady Apaches 53-52 on Friday to improve to 8-4 on the season.
â€śIt was a battle,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. â€śIt was a good win for us after not playing well against Clinton.â€ť
