Inconsistency poses challenge at conference tournament

The girls basketball team had to travel to David City for their first-round matchup in the conference tournament against David City.

The girls basketball team came out even with David City and after the first quarter the score was seven to seven, but in the second quarter, things started to slow down. The girls basketball team was outscored 14-4 in the second quarter leaving them down 10 at half-time.

“We started the game pretty even with them,” said Madison Ohdle ‘24. “We got down in the second quarter and we could never come back.”

The girls were never able to come back after halftime being outscored by David City 23-16 leaving the game with a final score of 44-27

“We struggled to score in the first half,” said Izzy Ohlde ‘25. “It was better in the second half but still not enough.”

The girls basketball team would go on to face Sandy Creek in their second game of the conference tournament where they were again defeated this time by a score of 37-36. The game came down to the final seconds but the girls basketball team was unable to come out on top.

“It was close almost the whole game,” said Casidy Sipek ‘23. “We were winning when the fourth quarter started but we weren’t able to hold the lead.”
