The varsity girls basketball team opened their season in the very competitive Journey to the Tourney Showcase at Lakota West last Sunday and lost their opener to a very talented Gilmour Academy. The girls traveled to Sidney on Thursday night in hopes of getting things back on track, mission accomplished!
The varsity team set a school record for 3 pointers in a game by making 16 of them in the game in route to a 86-30 victory over the Yellow Jackets. Freshmen Amy Velasco led the Lady Elks with 22 points including six 3-pointers. Sophomore Kelsey George had 21 points including five 3-pointers. Sophomore Emma Stanley chipped in 11 points for the Lady Elks. The win evens the varsity record at 1-1 on the young season.
The JV team beat Sidney 49-11. The Lady Elks are back in action at home on Monday December 4th as the Freshmen host Alter at 4:30 pm while the JV and Varsity play Ponitz at 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm respectfully.
