WINONA — The Indianola Lady Colonels (1-0 preseason) defeated Hebron Christian 60-24 in a MAIS sanctioned preseason contest Monday on the campus of Winona Christian School.
“We didn’t play well at all,” Hebron Head Coach Bruce Franks said. “We didn’t shoot well and we turned the ball over too much. Indianola was a really good team to start as the first game. We are going to have to learn to set tempo and make less turnovers to get to where we need to be this season.”
