The Helias Lady Crusaders dropped a 75-68 decision Monday night to the Rolla Lady Bulldogs at Rackers Fieldhouse.
"This is just the first game, it's a journey," Helias coach Doug Light said. "There's a long way to go."
Helias is back in action Thursday at Hickman.
In Monday's JV game, Helias defeated Rolla 45-43.
