The 7A girls were in a close game until Prairie Hills took over in the 4th and the Wildcats lost 21-37. "We struggled from the free throw line (3-21). We forced bad shots and turned the ball over late in the game. Their full court pressure hurried us up and made us uncomfortable" said Coach Hansen. Prairie Hills got hot in the 4th quarter scoring 18 points. Olivia Ellis led the team with 7 points and Madi Cunningham led the team with 7 rebounds. Lexi Cunningham finished with 5 points, Makaylen Warner finished with 4 points, Rylee Dieker finished with 3 points, and Madi Cunningham finished with 2 points.
