Anna Lee and Eva Mitchell have been dicing up defenses all season for West Jessamine without many wins to show for it. Now the positive marks in the ledger are starting to pile up.

The Colts (11-6-2) are in the midst of a 10-game stretch without a loss. Their lone tie in that period came at No. 10 South Oldham, a perennial contender in the state.

West Jessamine went 2-6-1 in its first eight games. Four of those losses were to top 10 opponents and two to highly ranked out-of-state foes. The tie? No. 5 Lexington Catholic.
