DHS Girls Win Final Two Games Of Regular Season; Chris Nelson Heads To State

On Friday and Saturday nights, the Dorchester girls basketball team won their last two regular season contests of the 2015-16 season to finish two games over the .500 mark.  

The wins give the 12-10 Lady Longhorns some strong momentum as they head into sub-district competition this week.

Although DHS was tripped up 30-60 by a strong Hampton team last Tuesday at home, DHS bounced back to score impressive wins against McCool Junction (50-23) on Friday and at Parkview Christian (45-20) Saturday.

The DHS girls will need to be at their best due to the stiff competition in Subdistrict D2-2, which will be played at Centennial High School.  

The Lady Longhorns will face off against No. 1 seeded Exeter-Milligan (16-4) in the 6 p.m. game on Tuesday, Feb. 16.  If DHS should pull off the upset, they would take on the winner of the Hampton (18-4) vs. Meridian (11-11) game at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the DHS boys basketball team (2-18), with young players and small numbers, picked up a 45-44 victory over McCool Junction this past week.  

The Longhorn men will take on 8-12 Exeter-Milligan on Thursday night in Exeter to wrap up the regular season.

In other DHS sports news, congratulations to DHS' Chris Nelson.  He is Omaha-bound after qualifying for the Nebraska State Wrestling Tournament by capturing third place in the 182 lb. division of the Class B districts in Norfolk by pinning Angelo Lara of York in 40 seconds.

The state wrestling tournament will be held at the Centurylink Center Feb. 18-20.  Click here for more information.
