Thursday, February 16th the high school girls basketball team traveled to Hurley, WI to play their last regular season conference game. The girls knew going into the game that it was very big, they had a chance to be Co-Conference Champions. The girls started the game very strong with Senior Lily Truchon winning the tip and the cardinals immediately scoring by a post entry into Lily. It was a very close and intense game, with the biggest lead being 9pts by the cardinals. With just 3 minutes left junior Emily Montgomery made two free throws followed by a huge 3 pointer by Senior Beau Reijo to put the cardinals up by one point with one minute left. Hurley then drew a foul while on offense, the free throw was missed and Lily Truchon secured the rebound. Coach Ryan Tiberg called a time out with 20 seconds left to tell the girls to be smart and hold the ball. After the time out Hurley immediately had to foul to stop the clock. They fouled junior Kiley Mueller who sunk both of her free throws, followed by Lily Truchon the next possession who secured the win by also making both of her free throws. The Cardinals won the game 50-45. Congratulations to the 2022-2023 Co- Indianhead Conference Champions!
