On a blustery, cold Tuesday, the Lady Bulldogs headed to the Huron Holiday Classic to take on Iroquois/Doland for the first game of the day. The Lady Bulldogs took the start with the tipoff from Kennadi Buchholz, going to Mackenzie Zell and then to Emma Albrecht for two and didn't let up after that. De Smet moved the ball around well, looking for good shots, driving to the basket and denying the ball throughout the game. The Lady Bulldogs were led by Buchholz with 26 points, and the Lady Chiefs were led by Katie Dubro with 16 points.
