JV girls basketball suffers a tough loss to rival FHN 38-34


The JV girls basketball team had a tough loss on Thursday against the Northern Huskies 38-34. Once again, freshman Brittney Probst and sophomore Bryn Yoder were the Rangers’ leaders on defense and offense. Bryn was able to put up many shots after offensive rebounds to earn herself 12 points. Despite scrappy play throughout all four quarters, FHC fell short and finished the season 8-4 in conference play.

The Rangers came out strong in the first half by claiming the lead early on. With their 2-3 zone defense working exceptionally well, the team was able to have multiple steals and make a couple of quick layups. The Rangers went into halftime up by 9 points.

Something changed for FHC in the third quarter, however, as the Huskies began to beat FHC’s defense and were able to get multiple shots. With the Huskies closing the gap, FHC began to make some soft passes that the Huskies were able to get a hand on. This allowed the Huskies to take the lead in the fourth quarter. The score went on to be tied on multiple occasions, but the Rangers couldn’t get over the hump and get a lead again. With 0.8 seconds left in the game, the Huskies were sent to line and they made the pair, ensuring the win for Northern. In the end, this battle was a one possession game.

Looking back on the season, the Lady Rangers are very proud of themselves on how well they did overall. Even though the Rangers lost on Thursday, the games they’ve played this season have shown their sheer determination and talent. While they might not have finished the way they would’ve liked, the players have grown tremendously since the start of the season.
