Lady Longhorns Surging As Season Winds Down
Thanks to two key victories this week, the Dorchester Longhorns girls basketball team have now surpassed the .500 mark, enabling the girls to boast a winning record as they enter the final chapter of the regular season.
The York News-Times covered the DHS ladies and their Thursday win against a Nebraska Lutheran squad that was sporting a 12-5 record coming into the contest.
The Lady 'Horns hit eight 3-pointers to beat Nebraska Lutheran 53-33. The 'Horns were lead by Jacee Weber, who scored 18. See the York newspaper's story by clicking here.
DHS beat a solid Giltner team 46-38 last night (Friday) thanks to a team-leading 12 points poured in by Makenna Bird and even scoring from six other DHS players.
The DHS girls are now 5-2 after its last seven games.
The Lady Longhorns have positioned themselves to finish strong as the regular season winds down. Although DHS will face a strong Hampton team (16-4) on Tuesday at home, DHS should pick up at least two more wins against McCool Junction (1-14) on Friday and at Parkview Christian (1-12) next Saturday.
Meanwhile, the DHS boys basketball team, with young players and small numbers, is enduring a building year, posting a 1-16 record thus far.
The Longhorn men will have opportunities to pick up two victories this week when they take on Hampton and McCool Junction, which claim only five victories combined.
