COLUMBUS – It was a tough night for the LaGrange Grangers, who fell to a gifted Spencer team 98-52 on Tuesday.

LaGrange (10-8 overall) fell to 3-3 in Region 2-AAAA with two regular-season games remaining, and they’ll both be at home.

After facing Shaw on Wednesday, LaGrange closes the regular season against Hardaway on Friday.

LaGrange is tied with Troup and Carver for fourth place in the region, while Columbus is in third place at 4-3.

In Tuesday’s game, LaGrange hung in there early and was down 22-15 after the first quarter, but Spencer led 53-29 at the half, and it continued to pull away in the second half.

There wasn’t a girls’ game on Tuesday because of COVID-19 issues with the Spencer team.
