Girls head to district tourney in top spot


  Wrapping up their regular season, the Lady Terriers finished the week with two wins but fell short earlier Tuesday at N. Cheyenne. It is only their second loss of the season, putting Terry in the top seed for the District 4-C tournament to be held at the Custer County District High School gymnasium in Miles City, Feb. 17 - 20.

The varsity girls will face off Wed., Feb. 17 at 1 pm against the winner of Tuesday night’s St. Labre/Hysham game.
Coach Kortum expressed optimism in the girls’ potential at the district competition, noting their regular season performance.
“We finished the season strong and focused,” Kortum said. “We’ve beaten everyone, so it’s attainable. We just have to get it done.”
 
Terry vs. N. Cheyenne
Northern Cheyenne’s quick ball handlers took it to the Terriers’ defense by driving and drawing the foul. The Lady Eagles also brought out a good full press which was good for the Terriers as they learned to know when to make the pass up court and when to take the ball up the court by themselves.  
The final score was Terry 61 - N. Cheyenne 66. Individual scores are as follows: Lorna Wollman - 8, Lindsay Stickel - 3, Carly Stickel - 4, Kristina Fredrickson - 3, Ashley Morast - 2, Dani Dukart - 15, Amy Browning - 9 and Amanda Haidle-17.
 
Terry vs. Glendive’s JV
On Thursday, Terry faced off against Glendive’s junior varsity girls’ team in a game designated to fill the hole in Terry’s schedule created because of Rosebud’s inability to put together a varsity girls’ squad.  
Terry, playing with enthusiasm and teamwork, defeated Glendive 44-38.
Scoring stats are as follows:  Dukart - 13, Browning - 12, Carly Stickel 7, Wollman - 6, Lindsey Stickel - 3, Haidle - 3.
 
Terry vs. Jordan
Saturday’s schedule had the Lady Terriers traveling to Jordan in a final regular season showdown with the Mustangs.  
Terry dominated the game, winning 56-19.  
“Jordan was the biggest victory margin and our best game from beginning to end,” Kortum said. “It’s a good way to end the year going into tournament.”
Terry held the Mustangs to seven points in the first half and allowed them to only score 12 more points by the end of the game.  The Lady Terriers also executed their zone offense well helping the team to score on almost every possession.  
Overall good crisp passes were made, also helping to contribute to the win. 
Individual scores are listed as follows: Wollman - 5, Lindsay Stickel - 3, Carly Stickel - 7, Anna Fredrickson - 3, Dukart -12, Browning - 14 and  Haidle -12.
