Lady 'Stangs Earn Region Berth
February 26, 2014By Melvin Webster of Bishop Brossart High School
It's do or die time. The outstanding senior class of the Lady 'Stangs are making their last stand. They want it to be a memorable one. Four more wins would give them the school's second Sweet 16 appearance and a Region Title. They took the first step tonight beating Calvary Christian 63-21 in the 37th District opener at Campbell Co. Middle School.
The Lady 'Stangs rolled out of the gate rushing to leads of 17-2 and 24-6 after one quarter. They extended that to 41-12 by the half. They eventually led 60-17 to run their record to 21-5 on the season, their third straight 20 win season. Senior Sarah Futscher led all BBHS scorers with 13 followed by sophomore Sydney Shannon with 10. All fourteen Lady 'Stangs saw action with 11 of them playing between 11 and 14 minutes.
Brossart outshot Calvary 54.5% to 21.2% and won the rebound battle 36-18 led by Futscher's 6. They outscored Calvary 22-0 in points off turnovers.
Calvary standout Sarah Rhoden finished her career with a game high 16 points.
BBHS now advances to play the Scott – Campbell Co. winner in the Championship Thursday at 7:00.
