After a long Christmas break, the girls and boys basketball teams played at home against the Medicine Lodge Indians on Jan. 5. As usual, both JV teams played at 4:30 p.m and the girls varsity played at 6 followed by the boys at 7.

“I think it went pretty good; we played as a team,” junior Sammie Osner said. “We were making buckets.”

By halftime, the girls had an 11-point lead with a score of 31-20. In the second half,  the girls’ offense was unstoppable, and the girls ended with a 22-point margin and a final score of 58-36, leaving the girls with a record of 3-1 in league.

“We did pretty good,” junior Makenzie Curry said. “We did a lot better on our offense.”

The boys played hard the first half, going into halftime with a two-point lead and a score of 24-22. After a tough second half, the Cardinals came up three points short, with a final score of 46-49. The loss gave the boys a 1-3 record in league play.

“I think we did well as a team, giving it our best all the way to the end,” freshman Heath Hilger said.

The girls will play today at home against the Belle Plaine Dragons. Freshman/sophomore girls will play at 4:30 p.m., followed by JV at 6 and varsity at 7:30. The varsity boys will travel to Chaparral to play in the Roadrunner Classic Tournament Jan.17-20.
