St. Stephen's girls secure second seed for regional with win over Ten Sleep

Feb 17, 2014 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer

St. Stephen's took a big step toward the postseason this weekend with a split that earned the Eagle boys a second-place finish in the girls Northwest 1-A conference.

The Eagles fell Friday at Burlington to the top-seeded Huskies 65-43 but returned home on Saturday and ran away from Ten Sleep 61-38 to earn the secoind seed in the Class 1-A West in two weeks at Lander.

Burlington built a huge 17-4 lead after one quarter, largely on the play of Shelby Nicholson. Nicholson had a career-high 30 points, snagged15 rebounds, and added four steals and four assists in a stellar effort.

After trailing by 16 at the half, St. Stephen's played much better in the final two periods to close out the game.

Rachelle Lynch paced St. Stephen's with 18 points, while Marcel Oldman and Camille Whiteman scored 10 each.

Saturday, the Eagles returned the favor of holding an opponent down in the opening quarter, limiting the visiting Pioneers to just a single basket in the first period. St. Stephen's led 22-8 at the half and never looked back.

Whiteman had another solid effort finishing with 16 points. Oldman led the Eagles with 18.

St. Stephen's has just one game remaining in a non-conference tilt against Arapahoe Charter.

The Eagles first-round opponent most likely wll be Encampment a week from Thursday at the Lander fieldhouse.
