    As the Lady Knights hit the mid-point in the season, let's take a look at how the team has done so far and what the road ahead looks like.

    At 11-2, Trent Milby and the Lady Knights can't ask for much more at this point.

    "I'm pleased with where we're at right now," he said. "I think our defense is better than what I thought it would be. We've still got a lot of room to improve on offense. Brooke (Roberts) and Dee (Johnson) are struggling from outside. If they ever get scoring we'll be really good. And we're young so we're still learning."
