Girls Basketball Fights Hard at Districts

By Kylee Johnson

The Lincoln High Girls Basketball Team ended their season with a hard fight at districts, but they got knocked out by the defending state champs in the second round. “Our girls did a pretty good job,” Coach Jeff Pierce said. “Some girls really stepped up and played hard.” In the first round, the girls went against Omaha Bryan. “We won our first round of districts and beat Omaha Bryan.” Pierce said. “We scored 56 points and held them at 40.”

The second game, however, was against defending state champs, Benson, who had already won 45 games in a row. “[We] didn’t get off to great start, but played a good third quarter,” Pierce said. “It was a tough game, a tough outcome to finish the season, but I felt real confident that our kids had made a lot of progress. We didn’t get to on to the finals, but we finished on a positive note.”

During the season, Pierce had stated that the girls grew up a lot, especially during the second half of their season. “We work as hard as we can, represent the school, the community and the people that have been involved and all the people prior to us and do the best we can.” Pierce said. The team finished the season a positive note, but Pierce can’t wait until next year. “If we can gel and get some other players to step it up, score, and play better defense a year from now, we can definitely make some progress,” Pierce said. “We’re looking forward going into summer and to see what next year brings.”
