The SCW Lady Blackhawks are back on top of the 281 Conference with a Thursday night win over a formidable James Valley Christian team.

Myah Selland led in the effort with a game-high 24 points in the 49-38 win for first place. She also recorded seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.
Abby Doering added on 10 points, while Maddie Vermeulen had six. Tayla Weber combined offensive and defensive efforts for five points, four rebounds and five assists.

Khiree Held led the Lady Vikings with 19 points.
JVC fell to 9-3 with the loss, while SCW improved to 8-3.

AT THE conclusion of the Girls’ 281 Championship game, players from both teams, the James Valley Christian Lady Vikings and the Sanborn Central/Woonsocket Lady Blackhawks, gathered in a circle to say a prayer for one of SCW’s head coaches, Rob Baruth.  After 10 years cancer free, Baruth recently found out his melanoma had returned. He was unable to attend the tournament, as he had surgery the day before at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.	 	Baruth is now home recovering from surgery and awaiting further treatment. 	Baruth’s team and Blackhawk fans have taken up the motto, “Same Team Different Fight,” in reference to Tanna Kingsbury’s battle with a rare form of adolescent bone cancer. One month before her 16th birthday, early in the fall of 2014, Kingsbury succumbed to her cancer, 18 months after her initial diagnosis.
