Rebel Girls Battle Over the Border But Don’t Bring Home a Win

By Michelle Zenk, Student Reporter

The Rebel girls basketball team traveled to Garretson, South Dakota on Saturday morning for the 2 hour drive to play the Vermillion Tanagers at the  Border Bash. The Rebels started off the game not scoring the first shot. But then they scored their first point a few minutes into the game. The first point was a 2 point shot scored by Shelby Christensen, bringing the score to 2-14. Then soon after another 2 point shot was made by Rachel Van Iperen. The girls scored a few more shots but it wasn’t quite enough to get them close to the Tanagers with the score at the end of the first half with the Rebels behind with a score of 15-43. 

In the beginning of the second half the girls scored their first point quicker than they did in the first half but they needed to make more baskets if they were going to catch up with Vermillion. The girls did better in the second half of the game, keeping the Tanagers from scoring. But in the end, the girls lost the game with a point difference of  31. The Rebel girls lost against the Tanagers with a score of 28-59. The girls play again on Thursday night at Adrian to play the Dragons.
