The week of December 19 was a super successful week for Fossil Ridge High School’s girls varsity basketball team. The first game of the week was against Cherokee Trail High School on Tuesday, December 20. The second game of the week was on Wednesday, December 21 against Lakewood High School. Both games ended with a win for the Sabercats and moved their record to (8-2) early in the season.
