The Fairfield Lady Eagles had split results on the hardwood last week evening out their season record at (11-11), (0-1) in district play. Last Tuesday, Jan. 10, they hosted the Jacksonville Lady Indians and overcame their huge, 6-foot-3-inch post player, getting her into foul trouble in the second period, after she had blocked several shot attempts!

Fairfield finally began hitting some key shots, and their constant defensive pressure began to pay dividends with turnovers converted to points. A close game, 25-21 at the half, saw the Lady Eagles gradually pull away in the third and fourth quarters to a double digit victory.
