COLONY The highlight of the Lancer girls 43-29 win over the Chetopa Hornets occurred in the games final seconds when Crest freshman Vivian Noah went to the foul line to shoot two.
Noah isnt the best player on the team. In fact, most games she rarely plays. She hasnt scored a point all year. But if a team can be said to have a beating heart, shes it.
After the Chetopa foul, when it became clear that Noah was heading to the line with a chance at her first high-school bucket, the crowd erupted. Her teammates shouted encouragements. Her coach cheered.
