High School Girls Basketball Info.
Whew!! What an action-packed and exciting week for our girl's basketball program! The varsity started the week off on Monday by first playing the Menominee Indian Eagles and surviving a late run to get the win 42-40. Then, they immediately got on the bus to White Lake and took down the Lakers by a score of 63-11. With another snow day on Tuesday, the Manawa game was rescheduled for Thursday which meant we were ending the regular season with a game on 3 straight days! Manawa came into the contest with a 14-4 record and as champions of the CWC-North conference but the ladies brought a lot of energy defensively and were able to frustrate the Wolves. Manawa kept it close and tried making a run at the end of the game but free throws and tough defense earned us the win 47-42. On Friday, we traveled to Three Lakes for a non-conference game to make for a cancellation. The Rebels kept control throughout the game and earned a 67-37 victory. For our last regular season game, we traveled to Elcho Saturday to play the Hornets for second place in the conference. Elcho battled the entire foul-filled game but the Rebels had enough offensive firepower to get the 64-55 win. During this game, Libby Tinsman scored the 1000th point of her career!! Congratulations Libby! This is a very special milestone that few achieve! The girls host Lena on Tuesday, February 19th in Wabeno for the first round of the WIAA playoffs! Come support our ladies!
In addition to the high school, we also hosted our youth tournaments this weekend. All our youth teams had success with the 6th-grade and junior high teams taking 1st place, the 4th and 5th-grades taking second place, and our 3rd-grade team playing very hard and competing in the 4th-grade bracket. Thank you to the Laona PTO for running the concessions and to everyone else who helped out running the clock, doing the books, reffing, and/or cheered on our girls!
