Jeffs battle it out with Crete

The Girls Varsity Basketball team lost a close game to Crete this past Friday on December 14th. The final score was 39-35. The Jeffs are back in action Tuesday, December 18 against Beatrice.

“The game went very well,” Claire Shumard ’20 said. “We improved a lot from our past games. I don’t think anyone was expecting us to stay with them for that long and the ending score to be that close.”

Leading in points for the Jeffs was Sara Huss ’20. She had a total of 19 points. Jaelle Johnson ’20 followed with 11. Huss also lead in rebounds with a total of 13 and Johnson had 6.

Sophomore Ellie Ohlde said, “The game showed us that we are improving.”
