In the 7A game "Kaylee Hampton (#20) scored 23 points against us earlier in the season so we knew we needed to get the ball out of her hand and force other girls on their team to shoot the ball" said Coach Hansen. "Jade Smallwood and Kierra Cain spent the majority of the game guarding Hampton and limited her to 13 points. We had several opportunities throughout the game, but we struggled to make shots shooting 11/ 58 (19%) as a team. Madi Cunningham led the team with 8 points, Olivia Ellis scored 7, Lexi Cunningham scored 4, Makaylen Warner and Jade Smallwood finished with 2" said Hansen.

In the 7B game "slow start in the first quarter, but bounced back with a big second quarter scoring 13 points. Defensive pressure from MaKaylen Warner, Makenna Treat, and Kierra Cain allowed us to get out in run and transition. Treat led the team with 10 points, Cain scored 6, Warner added 5, and Izzy Loveless finished with 4 points" said Hansen.
