Photos by Bob Mischka

Shoreland Lutheran beat the Whippets in the second round of the WIAA Regional Playoffs on Friday, Feb 23. The final score was 59-52. Allison Heckert led the Whippet scoring with 19 followed by Miranda Reynolds with 14. This ends the WHS Girls Basketball 2017-18 season.

From Coach Judy Harms:

We turned the ball over way too many times tonight, several during key moments, and had a very poor shooting night.  Defensively we allowed Shoreland’s top player, Chelby Koker, to get her 31, including 10 for 10 from the line.   Lauren Heathcock also poured in 22.  Between the two of them we needed to do a better job at stopping their shots.   Tournament time teams need to step it up, and tonight we just didn’t do that.
