Lady Wolves hold strong; boys struggle with low percentages
If you want to see some "howling" good hoops, you should check out the MHC Lady Wolves! They have been on a 4 game winning streak heading into Friday's match-up vs. the 12-8 Wauneta-Palisade Broncos as their last regular season game before sub-district play begins. As this is written, the Lady Wolves are 11-8 on the season. This has placed them 2nd in the D1-11 Sub-District playing South Loup onTuesday, February 16th at Gothenburg High School.
Head coach, Kim Stengel feels that some of the success of the team comes down to finishing plays. She states, "We talk a lot about finishing plays on both ends of the court. Securing the rebounds and getting stops on the defensive end and working the ball until we get the shots we want on offense."
The Lady Wolves have put together some nail-biters the past few games. One of the best runs of the season was against Wallace in RPAC play. Down 14 points with 3:30 to go in the 3rd quarter, things began to click. With the ever-roaring MHC boys behind them the whole time, these girls put together a 30-2 run, winning by 14 points!
"I am so proud of everything these girls have put into making this all work. We have had a few injuries, but these girls all step up and continue to fight. I feel that they trust and have confidence in each other on the floor and that is essential as we head into post-season play." says Coach Stengel.
