23-16 at Half
Coach’s Comments (Ryan Hulke):
I am extremely happy of our defensive mind set Thursday night in Winthrop. That has always been a tough gym for us to win in. I thought going into the game we had a good game plan on the defensive end and the girls executed it wonderfully. GFW actually got out to a 9-0 lead and we held them to seven points the rest of the half and then only 16 more in the second half. For a team that averages 59 points a game, I am again very pleased with our effort.
Brianna Polesky and McKenzie Cselovszki had timely baskets in the first and second half respectfully which allowed us to break open our lead a bit more each time.
This was a big conference win for our basketball team. We are now tied with GFW at 6-1 on top of the conference and it’s solely on us now to take care of business to win back to back to back conference championships.
Madi Heiderscheidt 19 points, 7 steals and 4 assists
Brianna Polesky 11 points, 6 assists and 4 steals
Sarah ibarra 11 rebounds and 4 assists
Sleepy Eye is now 11-3 overall, 5-1 in Conference (tied with GfW for first) and plays at Hayfield Saturday vs NRHEG
