The gym was buzzing and full of energy when the Whippet Girls’ Basketball Team hosted Youth Night for a conference game at home against McFarland Friday, January 14. The amazing collaboration of our district bands for the Pepapalooza event added to the buzz.
The Whippets fed off the energy in the gym, coming out strong, and keeping the Spartans within reach, ending the first half down 11 points, 28-39. Maintaining the intensity, Whitewater narrowed the score to within 8 in the second half. The Spartans went on a 16 point scoring run with the Whippets stuck at 38, creating a deficit the Whippets were unable to recover from, losing 44-80.
Gwen Truesdale led the Whippets with 14 points, followed by Danielle DePorter with 10, Kindyl Kilar with 7, and Jenna Pope with 6.
The Whippets will take on Elkhorn next week Tuesday, January 18, at home.
