JEFFERSON CITY --- It really didn't matter how good, or how bad, the other team was.

And let's be honest, the other team wasn't, well ... let's just say they weren't the UConn women.

Still, this was for a district championship and this was impressive. It was overpowering. Devastating.

Not to mention drought-breaking.

The top-seeded and fourth-ranked Lady Jays used a 17-0 outburst in the first half Thursday night on their way to a 52-21 thrashing of the Holt Lady Indians in the Class 5 District 8 championship game at Fleming Fieldhouse.

In the nightcap of the Jefferson City district doubleheader, there would be no sweep, as the Battle Spartans beat the Jays 85-69.

For the Jefferson City girls, however, this was the program's first district title since 2009 --- and there was no doubt about it.
