Viqueen Basketball

  The Queens won a hard fought contest at SW Valley Thursday night. A close first half saw the Queens take a 20-16 lead. In the second half the Queens found their range and continued to play stellar defense out scoring the Timberwolves 13-5 in the 3rd frame.  Abby Burke was able to hit a couple timely 3's which helped to open the inside game. The defense also produced scoring with Marleigh Johnson and Hope Ogletree scoring lay ups off defensive steals.

SW did make a run late to close with in 7 points. Final Stanton 49 - SW Valley 34

  In the Corner Conference Tournament first round the Queens took care of business defeating 6th seed Essex Tuesday night 71-22.This raises their record to 11-2 on the season. The Trojanettes were no match for the Queens. The night was highlighted by Abby Burke's offensive performance. Abby went 6-8 from 3 point range and 4-6 from 2 point range to net a game high 26 points on the night and added 7 rebounds. 

Viking Basketball

  The Viking basketball team took on SW Valley last Thursday and came away with the win, 68-49. Coach Blunt said, “At times we were good on both ends and other times we lost focus and turned the ball over too many times. Scoring was spread out but we have to find a way to play each possession with more focus.”

  The team started off the Conference Tournament by taking on the Clarinda Academy Eagles.We got off to a good start again and hit the open guy often to open up the game early.  I thought we rebounded better and were not as careless with the ball.  A good win to start the conference tournament,” said Coach Blunt. The Vikings took the win, 90-41.
