UNION  The Union girls have no seniors on their basketball team this season and with that comes frequent growing pains.
Tuesday night, however, it was the Lady Jackets dishing out the misery as they whipped Pelahatchie 65-33 in first-round action of the Division 6-1A Tournament.
In other games Tuesday, the Sebastopol girls bashed Edinburg 49-17, the Thomatown boys drubbed Edinburg 93-42, and the Sebastopol boys knocked off Lake 65-49.
