The 2018-2019 version of the Lady Bears opened with a nail biter. Coming in with a young team led mostly by freshmen and sophomores, the Bears couldn't quite seal the deal in a 1-pt loss to class 7A Brookwood.
HIES received a very balanced scoring performance. Freshman Marya Hudgins made a splash in her debut with 16 pts, 9 rebounds and 7 steals. Jada Farrell contributed 14 pts & 15 rebounds, followed up by Charlie Berkel with 10pts, Cierra Foster with 8 pts, and Naja Reeves with 7pts.
The Golden Bears move to (0-1) and will be back in action vs Northview next.
