Last Friday the Varsity girl’s basketball team faced off against Battle Mountain for the final game of Winterfest week. After losing to Elko earlier that week, the Lady Bucks wanted to redeem themselves on their home court.
“We were ready to win after a tough loss in Elko,” said Alyssa Dendary.
After a difficult first half, the girls were confident that they would beat the Lady Longhorns.
“It’s always difficult when our shots aren’t dropping, but we played good defense which made up for it and I would give a lot of credit to our post for keeping Battle Mountain’s score low. They seem to rely on lay-ups and we kept them out of the paint,” stated Dendary, “Overall I think we played decent and we came out strong in the second half.”
Senior Chandra Waner was unable to play in Friday’s game but will be returning for their next games.
“The girls worked hard and played with their hearts all through the game,” said Waner.
The Varsity girls have three more games before they head to Elko to play Elko in their first playoff game. The girls gained their spot in the playoffs by defeating league opponents, Sparks and Dayton, early in the season. The Varsity girls played Spring Creek on Tuesday and will face off against Ely and West Wendover this Friday and Saturday, both of which will be home games.
