On Saturday, Feb. 29, the Sanborn Central/Woonsocket junior high girls basketball team traveled to Iroquois to participate in the Iroquois “Big Slam” Junior High Tournament. The tournament was made up of seven area teams. The SCW girls played well and came out with third place. 

The first game of the afternoon found the SCW girls playing against the Iroquois/Doland Chiefs. SCW was dominant for the whole game and won with a final score SCW 26 and Iroquois/Doland 17.

The SCW girls moved on to the semi-finals where they met James Valley Christian on the court. The girls played tough, but the shots weren’t falling for SCW and they lost to JVC, 9-26.

For the final game of the afternoon, the SCW junior high girls played Wolsey-Wessington to determine third and fourth place in the tournament. The Lady Blackhawks started out slow in the first half and found themselves behind, 8-12.

On Tuesday, Feb. 25, the SCW Lady Blackhawks traveled to Alexandria to go up against the Hanson Beaverettes in a Region 4 game. Unfortunately, the Lady Blackhawks came home with a loss and an end to their season for the year. The final score for the game was Sanborn Central/Woonsocket 40, Hanson 57.

The Lady Blackhawks were led by Trista White with 11 points and two steals. Mariah Jost notched eight points and two steals. Brooke Doering dished out seven points and five rebounds, and Taryn Ziebart helped out with six points.

The SCW ladies end their season with a record of 11-10. They finished strong with five straight wins to end their regular season play, and Hanson had to work hard for their win last Tuesday night. They are a young team with two sophomores starting and two more getting a lot of time off the bench, so SCW will continue to see progress as those girls gain experience.
