The following is the coach's summary of the Northern Valley Lady Huskies game vs. Stockton yesterday evening. 'The Lady Huskies took on the Stockton Tigers on January 25th. The game was very intense and competitive in the first half coming in with a tie. After halftime, the Tigers had three three-point shots that helped to build up a 6 point lead at the end of the third quarter. The fourth quarter saw multiple Huskies foul out and the game began to blow wide open for the Tigers. The final score of the game was 37-59. Scoring for the Huskies: Braxton Cox-11, Austyn Cox-9, Shaylee Vsetecka- 9, Savannah Rose and Stephanie Whitney had 4 apiece. The JV Lady Huskies started off the night's action with two quarters against the Stockton JV. The JV girls battled hard leading through the first quarter with some big three pointers. The Tigers, in what would be the theme of the night, used their size and length to hold the Huskies to one point in the second quarter and used their size to take the game. The final score of the game was 10-18. Scoring for the Huskies: Haley Hansen- 4, Delaney Sides- 3, Tatum Lentz- 2, Daynah Bailey- 1. The Huskies will take on Western Plains-Brewster on January 28th in Almena.'

Below is the summary of the lady huskies' game against Trego last night. 'The Lady Huskies took on the Trego Golden Eagles on December 7th to start off the Purple and Gold Tournament. The ending score was 12-47. The Huskies battled hard and showed a large crowd how much passion they have for the game. The defense stepped up huge and played very well despite being very largely outsized by the Lady Golden Eagles. The struggle for the night was shooting the ball against much taller defenders. The Lady Huskies pick up action in the tournament with the Victoria Lady Knights on Friday, December 10th at 3pm. Leading Scorer: Savannah Rose-3 Leading Rebounder: Austyn Cox- 6 '
