Stanton Viqueens ended their season on Tuesday with a loss to CAM-Anita. After a 56-36 first round win against South Page the Queens next task was handling a hot shooting CAM squad. The Queens struggled at times against the press committing 31 turn overs in the game. When Stanton effectively guarded the paint CAM reverted to shooting 3's, hitting 6 of 8 in the first half.
The Queens finish the season 8-13, a young team that at times showed some growth and promise throughout the season. Coach Snyder commented, “The girls have set a foundation to build upon, we do not graduate a senior so this team has a unique two phase process for achieving success, the second phase has now begun."
The Vikings finally were able to get a good night for traveling to Bedford to face a 16-4 Bulldog team. The Vikes got off to a good start and were able to overcome some slow periods to take a 30-13 halftime lead and then extend the led to 20 a couple times before taking a 70-58 victory to complete our regular season at 19-1 and 12-0 in the conference. It was an exciting atmosphere for 2 good teams and the Vikes were excited to pull out the solid victory in front of a good representation of Viking fans.
Junior Varsity Boys Basketball
The Junior Varsity boys basketball team ended their season on a winning note with a win Monday night against Bedford. The team finished with a record of 9-2 on the season. The players improved each game and continue to give the Varsity players a great look during practice.
