LCA Opener Postponed

WINONA LAKE – Lakeland Christian Academy’s girls basketball season-opening game with Cornerstone Christian College Prep on Tuesday was postponed due to a lack of healthy players for the visiting team, according to LCA athletic director Tim Yocum.

He said the game will either be rescheduled or replaced. Yocum said Tuesday’s opponent is not the same school as Cornerstone Christian School, who will host the Lady Cougars Jan. 9.
