Lady Cats win last regular season game
February 18, 2021
Friday, the Lady Cats basketball team hosted the Lawrence-Nelson Raiders. It was the SHS Parent's Night. The Lady Cats' only senior to be honored was Sierra Blackburn. The Lady Cats outscored the Raiders in two out of four quarters:
Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Final
Raiders 3 10 9 9 31
Lady Cats 10 8 17 5 40
Coach Nannen summarized the game:
"We came out of the gates with excellent defensive intensity, holding the Raiders to three points in the first quarter. That really helped us set the tone for the rest of the game defensively."
"Offensively, we did a much better job of being patient and getting good looks at the basket consistently throughout the game. We shot the ball very well from three in the third quarter, knocking down four 3s. When we can knock down shots confidently from three, we can be really dangerous."
"After a three game losing streak to some tough opponents, this was a big game for us to find our confidence and get back in the winning column. This win should help our mindset tremendously as we head into post-season play next week!"
