Varsity started their season out at New Trier, unfortunately, lost that first game by the final score of 54-27. However, they came back with a game against Philips High School, playing at Loyola Academy, and took home a significant win 66-49. Nari Powers led the Blue Devils with 20 points and 10 rebounds, Mariah Phelps was right behind with 19 points and 7 rebounds, Anika Youngman had 9 points and Shay Love chipped in with 8 points.

Varsity defeated Zion Benton High School  by the final score of 58-10 with Nari Powers leading with 16 points, Anika Youngman scoring 12 points and Mimi Dilosa had 10 points in the victory. They played Libertyville on December 5 and suffered a loss. This leaves their record at 4-3. The Lady Blue Devils will play an away game against Stevenson High School this upcoming Friday night at 7 pm. 

The Junior Varsity had a tough start where they lost their first two games, but still plan on turning things around. Their first game was against Fenwick with Anisty Callahan tallying 14 points and Jackie Amezquita racking up 9 points.
