The Logan Junior High hosted the Huskies from Northern Valley on Thursday, Dec. 3 in the Logan Gym. These were the first games played after the KSHSSA decision which prohibited fans from attending.

While the atmosphere wasn't what they were used to, the Trojans came out and played well for the fans at home who were watching by video. The B-team girls got off to a slow start and fell to the Huskies with a score of 8-12. From there on out, it was all Trojans as they dominated the rest of the night.
With a huge height advantage over the Valley, the B-team Trojans rolled over the Huskies 22-9. The A-team girls game was a little closer, with the Lady Trojans scoring 28 to the Husky's 19.
