HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Central Catholic girls basketball accomplished an enormous feat Saturday: Defeat the previously-unbeaten Adams Central Patriots on the road. The catch? They did so without star player Lucy Ghaifan.

The Crusaders hit 10 three-pointers and also went 10-of-17 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter to beat the Patriots 50-49. Ghaifan missed the game after leaving the team’s previous contest early following a collision with Northwest’s Avyn Urbanski.

The Crusaders now earn the distinction as this week’s 5-Star Performer for their effort.
