The Lady Blackhawks finish week strong after tough start

Mariah Jost puts up the ball during a game at Sanborn Central last week.

On Monday, Jan. 28, the Lady Blackhawks hosted Ethan for a doubleheader in Forestburg. The Ethan Rustlers girls’ basketball team is currently rated first in the state, and they have been for a good portion of the season, so the Lady Blackhawks went into their game knowing it would be quite a challenge. 

The junior varsity games were first, and the younger girls ended with a loss added to their record. The final score was SCW 21, Ethan 41.

The varsity girls squad also ended with a loss for their record with a final score of SCW 33, Ethan 56.

On Thursday, the SCW ladies traveled to Corsica to take on another ranked team, number four Corsica-Stickney. The C-team played and the game ended in a tie with the Jaguars at 20-20.

The junior varsity ended a hard-fought battle with a tough loss and a close score of SCW 26, C-S 28.

The varsity girls had a slow start and never found a groove. The final score was SCW 28, Corsica-Stickney 60.

On Saturday night, the Blackhawks hosted Wolsey-Wessington in a doubleheader in Forestburg. These two teams had met once already this season, in the 281 Conference Tournament. That game ended in a win for the Lady Blackhawks and a final score of 60-40. The matchup on Saturday ended in a lower score, but the Lady Blackhawks still got to claim victory with a final score of SCW 49, W-W 36. 

The SCW ladies improve to a record of 10-6. They played Iroquois in a doubleheader in Iroquois on Tuesday night. Results of that game will be in next week’s issue. They also play Highmore-Harrold in a doubleheader in Woonsocket on Friday, Feb. 8.
