Taighe Weeter, Saint Francis freshman, puts up the ball for two Indian points during the varsity game against the Wildcats. The Sharon Springs player fouled Weeter in this play. However, Weeter still managed to score 16 total points for the Indians. Hanna Bracelin, Saint Francis junior, scored the most for the Indians with a total of 18 against the Wildcats.

The Saint Francis High School varsity basketball girls won a well-earned victory over the Sharon Springs Wildcats, 53-47.

The Lady Indians and the Lady Wildcats started the first quarter out playing pretty evenly, but the Lady Indians took control of the game and got a nine-point lead right before halftime. The Lady Indians started the second half with a bang, sinking multiple shots along with many rebounds. The Lady Indians got the momentum and started rolling with it. At one point, the Indians were up by 15. As the fourth quarter went on, the Lady Wildcats got themselves back into the game after a few made buckets. The Lady Indians had to dig deep to end this game with a win and that's exactly what they did. “It was our heart that won the game for us tonight,” said Reagan Beims, Saint Francis junior. “We all went to our full potential and took it to them. We already beat them before and we knew we had to come in ready for a fight. Our team was unstoppable and it was such a fun game to play.”

The Lady Indians got some defensive stops that led to the Wildcats fouling to try to get an opportunity to get back in the lead. To the disappointment of the Wildcats, the Indians made their free throws, which helped seal the victory for the Indians. “I felt like we were ready to play, and wanted to win,” said Taighe Weeter, Saint Francis freshman. “We knew we were going to have to play hard if we wanted to get the win.”

The Lady Indians will now play in the substate tournament in Quinter on Thursday, March 2 for an opportunity to make it to state. “That win against the Wildcats means a lot to all of us,” said Hanna Bracelin, Saint Francis junior. “We beat someone who had beaten the people we need to beat to make it to state. When we work together and play hard all of the time, we are a very good team.”
