For the last 10 games, all the St. Clair Lady Bulldogs have done is win.
The current St. Clair winning streak started against St. James at the Rolla Girls Basketball Holiday Tournament and continued against the Lady Tigers (10-12, 2-2) Monday.

“They’ve got a good program, but they’ve got some girls hurt and that hurt them,” St. Clair Head Coach Mike Scheer said. “... That third quarter we really got after it and that’s when we really started to pull away.”
Haley Buscher led all scorers with a season high of 21 points to go with four rebounds, two steals and two assists.
“I was really happy with the way Haley played,” Scheer said. “I think she had points in every quarter. She really stepped up. ...She shot the ball pretty dang good and was taking it to the basket.”
