FORT WAYNE â€” Indian Springs Middle Schoolâ€™s 8th-grade Lady Eagle basketball team was handed its first conference loss Thursday at Woodside Middle School.
Though the Lady Eagles held the lead throughout most of the game, Woodside went on a 9-4 run in the final four minutes to win, 36-30.
The Lady Warriors switched to a zone defense, limiting Indian Springsâ€™ offensive options.
Indian Springs head coach Trish Sittler said the game wasnâ€™t lost due to lack of deisre.
