ST. JOSEPH GIRLS
In the Class 2A girls tournament at Hampton, St. Joseph shot poorly from the field, and Marmaduke raced to a 53-31 victory to end the Lady Bulldogs’ season at 28-5.
Madeline Moix had 14 points for St. Joseph. Taylor Womack had seven points and six rebounds. Meagan Briggler and Anna Mayor had six rebounds. Rachel Briggler had five assists and three steals.
“We had a tough night shooting and could never get our rhythm on the offensive end,” said St. Joseph coach Chris Kordsmeier. “But for the season, I could not be more proud of this group of young ladies. We had a great season being conference and district champs and getting to the Elite 8 of the state tournament.
“It has been a privilege and honor to coach this group of young people. I just want to say thanks to our seniors Rachel and Meagan Briggler, Abby Kordsmeier, Anna Mayor and Taylor Womack. They were great leaders and will be missed very much.”
In a 51-44 victory over England in the quarterfinals, Mayor had 14 points and six rebounds. Rachel Briggler added 12 with six assists and four steals. Madeline Moix had 10 points and six rebounds. Meagan Briggler had eight points. Womack had six points and eight rebounds.
