Stanton Viqueens played SW Valley last Thursday. The Viqueens ran out to an early first quarter lead 13-7 only to fall flat in the 2nd and 3rd frames scoring 4 and 2 points respectively. Coach Snyder said, "Our scoring troubles continued but only down 3 at half was a positive we could at least work with. We needed to come out after half and hit some shots and that just did not happen, we had a chance to make a game of it against a quality opponent"
The Viqueens turned what seemed to be a run of the mill double digit loss into a 4th quarter barn burner Friday night in Stanton High School gym. With Fremont-Mills visiting it appeared that Stanton was going to settle for another loss due to a lack of offensive production. This would not be the case in the 4th quarter the Queens hit a different gear. In the final minutes Stanton hit 4 3 pointers with Anika Wenstrand knocking down 2 and Hope Ogletree and Shelby Brockshus each hitting one. Coach Snyder commented, "We had the game on the line against an 11-6 team, hopefully this can give us some much needed momentum heading into the final stretch of the season."
The Vikings had a very good week on the court. We went 3-0 with good wins over Essex, Southwest Valley and Fremont-Mills. We shot the ball very well all week and the defense played well. Against SWV we were able to take an 11 point lead at halftime and extend it during a 31 point 3rd quarter and hitting 7 3's in the 3rd quarter alone. Friday night we were able to get out to a 14-0 lead and stay in control throughout the game.
We were able to secure the regular season championship on Tuesday night at Sidney but beating the cowboys 76-65. We have 1 game left in the conference race at Clarinda Academy. These seniors have been a part of a 3rd place tourney trophy as freshmen, Conference regular season and tourney champs as sophomores, 2nd place tourney and co-regular season champs and District champs as juniors and now tourney champs and regular season champs as seniors. 7 basketball trophies will have their name on them!!
Next week will be a busy one with home game/parents’ night on Monday vs Lenox, Tuesday at Diagonal and Friday at Bedford.
