SHS girls on the way to state tourney


It took some final second heroics by Kalynn Meyer to secure the win over North Central, 43-41, at Ord, Friday, to push the Superior High School girls basketball team into the state tournament.

It didn’t come easy. A persistent North Central team played the Wildcats even and led Superior at several points throughout the game. Superior’s offense was less than consistent enduring extended scoring droughts of several minutes duration.

When the final 10 seconds of the game arrived, Superior was in a 41 all tie. Meyer took the inbound pass. Rather than drive to the basket, she took a jump shot which went through the net to seal the Superior win.

The Wildcats had an off game with cold shooting and a patchy defensive effort.

K. Meyer led the Wildcats with 21 points. Shayla Meyer contributed nine points. Trisha Hayes netted seven points. Zaveah Kobza scored four points. Hallie Miller accounted for two points. K. Meyer pulled down 14 rebounds for the Wildcats. S. Meyer collected eight rebounds. Hayes secured four rebounds. Sierra Blackburn accounted for three rebounds. Kobza landed one rebound. Miller finished with one rebound.

Superior opens state tournament play as the sixth seed today (Thursday) agains number three seed Hastings St. Cecilia at Lincoln North Star High School, Lincoln. Game time is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Hastings St. Cecilia won the regular season meeting of the two teams, 53-45, at Hastings, Jan, 21.

The outcome of today’s game will determine the path Superior follows throughout the tournament.
