Girls Regional Basketball
Admission to all regional games is $6.00 for adults and students. No school or conference passes are accepted for tournament games.
The Vikings had an exciting few games. The win last Friday at Fremont-Mills (55-49) allowed us to get back into the regular season race for the conference title. We took another step closer to that by beating Sidney on Tuesday night (66-53). With a win on Friday night vs an improved Clarinda Academy team we can lock up a share of the regular season title. We have some big non-conference games next week, going to Lenox on Monday, hosting Diagonal on Tuesday, and hosting Bedford on Friday night. District schedules will be out soon.
The Queens found themselves in a hole quickly vs Fremont-Mills last Friday down 14-4 with 3 minutes remaining in the 1st quarter. The lead changed hands several times in the 2nd half with FM taking a 3 point lead with less than 2 minutes to go. Stanton's full court pressure generated FM turnovers that led to two Stanton scores the last coming on an Ally Focht drive giving Stanton a 43-42 edge. After a Chelsea Weis free throw, Stanton's outstanding final defensive stand sealed the deal moving the Queens to 14-4 on the season with a 44-42 victory.
Stanton suffered its 5th loss of the season with three of those losses coming from the Sidney Cowgirls. "We failed to do the little things right, we missed some easy shots and didn't execute the offense with sharp passing. Defensively we gave up too many second chance points. The Queens did put up a fight and there were moments when the game could of really got away, we continued to play hard the entire 32 minutes" said Coach Snyder. Final Sidney 54 Stanton 40.
