Looking at the 1A-I Girls Tournament Field
St. Paul (21-2)
The Lady Indians have had to deal with the loss of Jordyn Tuck because of a torn ACL during volleyball season. Tuck was on the First Team All-State last season. The Indians only losses were to Pittsburg-Colgan who qualified for 2A State, and Columbus who qualified for the 4A-I State Tournament. They’re led by senior Ashton Wood, who is (13.2 points per game) and Josie Albertini.
Lost Springs-Centre (20-3)
The Lady Cougars are making their 4th consecutive trip to the State Tournament. The team is still looking for their first ever State Title in girls basketball. They’ll have a tough game vs Ingalls first round and then would more than likely meet the Hoxie team who has won 93 straight games. They’ll have a tough road if they want their first title on Saturday.
Thunder Ridge (19-3)
The Lady Longhorns have only played one team that will also be in State Tournament action this week. That team being St. John’s-Tipton Catholic which the Longhorns split with this season. They’re looking for their first State Championship.
The Lady Bulldogs are back to State Tournament, as they look to repeat what they did in 2013, when they won the State Championship. The Bulldogs are led by Kaisha Batman, who leads the team in both points and rebounds per game.
The Lady Panthers are back to the State Tournament to try and pick up their 5th State Championship in school history. Their last state title was 11 years ago, so they will try and break the streak and bring home another plaque.
The Lady Bulldogs are on a tear this year, as they only lost to Olpe back in the end of January. They’ll look to win the school’s first State Championship in girls basketball. They’re led by senior Hali Blackbourn.
The Lady Leopards are a very balanced offensive team, as only one player averages over 10 points per game. They enter state play on a three game win streak, and hope for three more wins to be crowned as State Champs. They’re led by senior Alyssa Oborny.
The Lady Indians have the state’s longest win streak after winning their 92nd consecutive game and claiming a spot in the State Tournament. They’ve won the last three state titles, and look to make it four this coming Saturday. They’re one of the most historic girls basketball programs in all of the country. They’re led by senior Carly Heim.
