Girls Basketball: The Week Ahead

Jack Berning, Sports Writer

The girls basketball team is coming off a 1-1 week, in which they blew out the Buffaloes of Smoky Hill, but fell to cross town rival Cherry Creek. Cherry Creek took the game by five, leaving the the Warriors with a 4-2 league record. Jennah Knaflec’s 19 points were not enough, as power forward Molly Rohrer was just too much down low for the Warriors.

The 10-4 overall record is nothing to be ashamed of, though. The Warriors will look to pick up two more important league wins this week. It won’t be easy, as the girls will square off against 8-7 Cherokee Trail, and 12-1 Grandview. The Grandview Wolves come in ranked 6th in the state, and with Michaela Onyenwere leading the team in scoring with nearly 24 points per game, the Wolves can pose a tough matchup for a smaller Warrior interior. The Warriors were crushed by Grandview earlier in the season.

The Warriors will be at home for both games this week, looking to improve on an already stellar season. As the girls play teams in the league for the second time around, starting with Grandview on Friday, they will look to ride a hot streak into the state tournament.
