The Nocona Lady Indians won their first game of the season on Tuesday at Alvord.

It was a tight first half with the Lady Indians only leading 28-26 at halftime. After that the offense executed better and Alvord could not keep up.
Averee Kleinhans led the team with 31 points despite not scoring any points in the first quarter.
Post player Karlee Brown joined her in double-digits with 13 points.
The team totaled eight 3-pointers during the game

New head coach Daniel Lindenborn was pleased to win the first game of the season, but sees a lot to improve.
“As a coaching staff, we felt the girls did well,” Lindenborn said. “Learning a new system under a different coaching staff is no easy task. We had moments where the girls ran the offense and defense very well. Everyone agrees there are many areas we can improve in. Overall, we are excited to keep moving forward and hopefully continue to improve each week.”
