  Stanton girls evened their record at 5-5 Friday in College Springs defeating the South Page Rebels 51-44.  The Viqueen's sluggishness following the winter break showed in the first half as three starters were handcuffed with three fouls each. Coach Snyder commented, "We did not move our feet well and paid the price with fouls". The layoff also showed in shooting percentage with the Queens shooting a miserable 18% from the field at half time. With all the negatives came a positive the Queens found themselves down by 2, 21-19 at the break.  "With Kami, Hope and Savanna in foul trouble it opened the door for Brooklyn Adams and Kaitlyn Bruce to have some prime time minutes, they stepped up and played well,” said Coach Snyder. In the second half the Queens stepped up their game and knocking down shots was a big part of the turnaround, finishing at 37% FG% for the night.  "We hit a different gear in the second half, we ran the floor, passed the ball and took and hit open jump shots. This is a part of our game that has been missing for several games, needless to say it was nice to see it come back," commented Coach Snyder. The Queens built a double digit lead going deep into the 4th quarter.

  Stanton (6-5) defeated HC 43-36 in a Corner Conference game Tuesday night. Stanton went on a 25-4 run late in the 2nd quarter and continued that run into the 3rd quarter. Coach Snyder said "We seemed to flip a switch going from a 14-17 deficit to a 25-17 lead at half, then staying on pace throughout the 3rd quarter.” Up 39-23 at the end of the 3rd frame, Stanton seemed to be on a roll. "Then the switch flipped the other direction and we could not do anything right. We really struggled with court leadership down the stretch,” Coach Snyder commented. Fortunately for the Queens it did not cost them the victory.


  The Vikings got the New Year off on the right foot vs Heartland Christian with a 104 to 55 win. We also got the #1 seed in the Conference Tourney next week and will play the winner of the East Mills/Clarinda Academy game. Stanton will host the semi-finals on Thursday night and will play the late contest. 

Junior High Girls Basketball

  Over winter break, the girls had a couple days in the gym. We played the Hamburg Wildcats on Thursday, January 4th. The team had a great game with a win, 51-24. The Viqueens then traveled to South Page on Friday, January 5th. The team finished with a win, 45-5.  This Tuesday, we had a home game with Clarinda Lutheran. The girls finished, 46-36. There is only one game left for the season, which will be at Essex on January 23rd. The team continues to appreciate the wonderful support of the school, friends, families, and community! Go Viqueens!!

Junior High Boys Basketball

  The Junior High Boys Basketball team has been busy after returning from Christmas break. The Jr. Vikes have won games over Hamburg (65-14), and they have defeated Heartland Christian twice by scores of 58-14 and 55-16. The boys have a little break before they close out their season at Essex, January 23rd.
