(September 18th, 2014)-STRYKER: Playing host to the visiting Lady Eagles of Fayette, Stryker probably didn’t realize they would be staying so late.
It took five sets to decide a winner in the BBC contest. That winner happened to be the home team Lady Panthers of Stryker. This one could have went either way, though.
