The South Grand Prairie Lady Warriors’ varsity basketball team went 2-1 this past week to help improve the overall team record to 5-7.

With the loss, the Lady Warriors moved on to play the DeSoto Junior Varsity squad in the consolation game.

SGP found themselves down at the half, 22-19, before the Lady Warriors came out hot in the third quarter.
