Rebels Win The First Round Of Playoffs

By Michelle Zenk, Student Reporter

The Rebels Girls basketball team started off their first round of playoffs at home on Monday night against the Flying Dutchmen of Edgerton Public. The girls had beaten this team earlier in the season, so it was interesting to see how the game played out. The starters for the game were Riley Schmitz, Amanda Muecke, Briana Schmitz, Montana Beckmann, and Rachel Van Iperen. The Rebels started the game with a two point shot made by Amanda Muecke making the Rebels the first on the scoreboard that night. The Rebels started out the first half with a lead against the Dutchmen but with a minute thirty in the first half they were tied with a score of 26-26. But with a few more points scored by both teams they ended off the first half with a score of 29-27, and the Rebels ahead of the Dutchmen by 2 points.

The Rebels started the second half slower than the first. Edgerton was the first to score but, soon after that Montana Beckmann made the first points in the second half for the Rebels with a three point shot. Then Riley Schmitz made a two point shot. The Rebels kept ahead of the Dutchmen for most of the game even though it got really close at some times but they managed to stay ahead and the Rebels won the game with a score of 59-51. Montana Beckmann scored most of the points for the Rebels with a total of 17 points. Riley Schmitz had 6 steals. This win moved them to the next round of playoffs on Tuesday night in Worthington.

Rebels End The Season Against SWMNC

By Michelle Zenk, Student Reporter 

The Rebels played the Southwest Minnesota Christian Eagles on Tuesday night in Worthington for the second round of playoffs. The girls had lost to this team two times this year so the real question was, can the girls pull out a win for this game, and move on to the next round? The starters for this game were Amanda Muecke, Riley Schmitz, Briana Schmitz, Rachel Van Iperen, and Montana Beckmann.  

To start off the game the Eagles made the first point but soon Riley Schmitz made the first points for the Rebels getting us on the board with a two point shot. The girls did a good job at the beginning of the first half of keeping up with the Eagles. But the Eagles kept scoring and by the end of the first half the Rebels were behind with a score of 22-46.

The girls had a slower start in the second half and didn’t score until a few minutes into the half. Rachel Van Iperen scored the first points for the Rebels with a two point shot. Montana Beckmann got a two point shot soon after. But the gap between the two scores kept getting larger throughout the game and with the girls running out of time, they were not able to keep up with the Eagles. The girls ended their season with a score of 51-87. Riley Schmitz scored the most for the Rebels with 12 points. Rachel Van Iperen had 10 rebounds.
