Girls jump head on into season


By Sharilyn Kortum

  After practicing since November 22, the Lady Terriers’ varsity and junior varsity teams got plenty of game action as between the two teams, they played five games in five days. It was nice to finally compete against a team other than their own.

Friday night saw the varsity team travel to Northern Cheyenne for their season opener and then played host to Plevna on Saturday night. After taking a quick break on Sunday, the girls put in two more days of games. Monday night, the junior varsity played their season opener against the Rosebud Wranglers. Tuesday saw the varsity and junior varsity teams travel to Longhorn country to play the Wibaux Lady Horns. Scoring results for that game were not ready by press time.
In their season opener, the Lady Terriers put together three decent quarters and played through some first game jitters as they defeated the Northern Cheyenne Lady Eagles 50-26. 
Scoring for Terry was:  Lindsay Stickel 8, Carly Stickel 2, Kensie Keller 1, Anna Fredrickson 3, Dani Dukart 20, Amy Browning 12, and Franque Robertson 4. 
Scoring for the Lady Eagles was: Vance 3, Bear Robe 5, Cunningham 5, Carlson 8, and Rising Sun 4.
     In their first home game of the season, the girls defeated the Plevna Lady Cougars 63-42. 
It was exciting to play at home in front of the home crowd, that included a new atmosphere this year with a cheerleading squad. Also adding to the atmosphere is the new banner hanging in the gym sporting the school song. 
With all the girls seeing action and playing good team ball, the scoring went as follows: L. Stickel 7, C. Stickel 10, Kristina Fredrickson 6, K. Keller 8, Ashley Morast 2, Dukart 8, Browning 14, and Amanda Haidle 8.
         Scoring for the Plevna club was: Gutierrez 2, L. Walker 8, Tunby 6, Steffes 7, and J.
Walker 19.
Monday night the Terry Junior Varsity squad played their first game of the season as they hosted the Rosebud Wranglers. The Rosebud team does not have a varsity team this year. It was a successful game as the Terriers were able to execute and work on many areas of their game. Offensively, Terry scored several points off of their transition game and also took advantage of being able to set up and work on their half court offense. Defensively, the girls played very nice team defensive. With their efforts, Terry won the contest 50-10. 
Scoring for Terry was: Anna Fredrickson 7, Caitlin Lantis 18, Lexie Schlosser 10, Mikayla Ridenhower 3, Caty Morrison 4, and Alyssa Morast 8. Rosebud’s scoring was: Hofer 2, Kang 1, Kraus 5, and Crocker 2.
