LATIMER – Already at a disadvantage with the only returning starter on the CAL girls’ basketball team out with a sprained ankle, the Cadets were also missing two others, one due to injury and the other attending a funeral, leaving them with only seven players against a loaded Clarksville team.

The Indians pounced from the start, forcing numerous, quick takeaways that led to scores in an eventual 70-4 lopsided score in both team’s opener on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at Latimer.
