Lima, OH – Wednesday was Parents Night and the Lady Barons played hard for their parents ending their regular season with a win over OSU Marion by the score of 60 to 45.

Over their last three games they are 2 and 1, with the one loss being by only 2 points against the #2 seed in the upcoming state tournament.
