The Penns Valley girls’ basketball team was unable to win its season opener in a 51-46 loss to Juniata Valley.
Senior Bethany Miller led the Lady Rams with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
“Bethany Miller has a solid all-around game,” coach Karen McCaffery said.
Courtney Beamesderfer and Mackenzie Ironside each added 13 points for the Lady Rams.
The Lady Hornets were fueled by Taylor Leidy’s game-high 16 points.
McCaffery, in her first game back as Penns Valley’s coach after a four-year absence, gave Juniata Valley credit for the win.
“We were a step slow and Juniata (Valley) has a quick team,” she said. “It was a good first game and we know what we need to work on.”
Penns Valley hosts Bald Eagle Area on Wednesday.
