As Lady Rebel Head Coach Carrie Eoff and her family celebrated the birth of her son, Coach Cindi Hansen and the Lady Rebels travelled to Berryville to play teams Highland has rarely or ever faced in the Fourth Annual Berryville Holiday Hoops Tournament.

The Lady Rebels lost to Blue Eye, Missouri, 48-24, on Thursday, Dec. 27 in the opening round. On Friday, Dec. 28, the Lady Rebs avoided the bad quarter, but still fell to Pea Ridge, 59-44. Their best chance of winning came on Saturday, Dec. 29 against Jasper, but they came up just a little short, 35-31.

In conference play and marking the return of Eoff, Highland held their-own against Brookland in the first half, but gave up 22 third quarter points to fall to the Lady Bearcats, 51-33, on Thursday, Jan. 3.

The Lady Rebs led Hoxie in the opening round of the Kell Classic in Swifton on Saturday, Jan. 5, but a 23-9 second quarter sent Highland to a 60-40 loss.

Against Blue Eye, Hope Isaacs led the team with 13 points. The Lady Rebels were down 14-4 after one, 22-14 at halftime, and 32-18 at the end of three.

Highland found themselves down 18-10 against Pea Ridge, but cut into the lead, 26-20, at halftime. The third quarter ended 39-30 in favor of Pea Ridge. Britney Bair led the Lady Rebs with 10 points.

Jasper led just 10-8 after the first period and 13-12 at halftime. An 11-3 third quarter was too much to overcome, but Highland outscored Jasper 16-11 in the fourth. Bair led the team with 12 points.

The 12-4 Brookland Lady Bearcats found themselves in a first half struggle against Highland as they exchanged leads six times in the first quarter with Brookland holding a slim 13-12 advantage. Highland tied the game at 18-all with two minutes left in the half, but the Lady 'Cats took a 23-18 halftime lead. Brookland led 45-26 at the end of three. Isaac and Bair led Highland with 10 point, apiece.

Playing the first game at this year's Kell Classic, Highland jumped on Hoxie 14-11 in the first quarter. It took until the 4:32 mark of the second quarter for the Lady Mustangs to regain the lead at 20-19, which the Lady Rebs were able to tie, but 10 turnovers in the third quarter allowed Hoxie to leap out to a 52-34 advantage. Isaacs led Highland (0-15, 0-7) with 23 points.
