Both the boys and girls honored the seniors at their last home games.
Girls State Game-
Well, it was a lot of fun coming down and playing on the big college court in Richfield but we could not keep up with Altamont last night. We were only down 9-4 after the first quarter. For whatever reason, the girls kept asking if we were at a higher altitude because they were sucking air pretty early on. We struggled the 2nd and 3rd quarters, even though we scored 9 points in the 3rd which is good for us. We tied them the 4th quarter but too little too late, losing by a score of 50-24. Everyone got to play a couple of minutes in the big game, and Kara and Brittany each made a 3-pointer! As always the girls worked hard and although very tired being run around by these big farm girls, we never, ever gave up. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and encouragement all season long! It had been my pleasure coaching your young women this season, and it has been my best, most rewarding season as a head coach so far. I appreciate the heart and fight in these ladies and hope that I have contributed in some way in their self-esteem and their confidence to help them live their live with the heart and fight they have shown me on the court every night. It was great to see everything come together at the end of the season and for them to taste some success and have reasons to celebrate, together as a team. Thanks! Coach Gardner
Our boys team has their last game tomorrow night. This game will seat us in the region tourney next week. We won’t know who we play until the games are finished, but we have qualified to play in the tourney regardless if we win or lose tomorrow’s game. We’re hoping to secure a spot for the state tourney in a couple of weeks.
