Lady Dillo Basketball Report

Body
The Lady Dillos headed to Harper last week for their 3rd district game and came away with a big road victory. Harper has a lot of size and brought back most of their team from last season. The Lady Dillos knew the Lady Horns would come out firing, but the Lady Dillos were up for the challenge. The first quarter was pretty tight, but the Lady Dillos would bust the game open with a 27-point second quarter which advanced the Lady Dillo lead to 34-14 at halftime. The Lady Dillos would continue to wear Harper down with physical defensive play and balanced ball movement on offense. The Lady Dillos would hold Harper to only 11 second-half points and eventually defeated Harper by a score of 56-25.

Coyote Pride

The holiday break is in full swing. The first half of the school year is past, and 2021 is upon us. It’s time to reflect on the good things that have happened at RSISD so far. Faculty and staff are wearing many hats, and truly seem to enjoy being in the midst of their students. Students are involved in school activities and discipline referrals are low.
