The Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad fell behind early to Carlisle and could never recover in a 55-35 loss to the Wildcats. Carlisle scored the first 13 points of the game and kept it between 15 and 20 points the rest of the way. Knoxville did get the deficit down to ten with just over a minute remaining in the first half, but a 7-1 run to close the second quarter prevented Knoxville from getting any closer. Katie Keitges and Shaye Nichols lead Knoxville with 12 points each. Knoxville also will host Pella on Tuesday.
