The Whippet Girls Basketball Team played their first regional game against East Troy on Friday evening, February 12. It was a tight game throughout.
We were tied with 45 seconds left in the game when Kacie Carollo hit a 2 pointer deep in the lane to put us up 58-56. We fouled in transition but luckily got the ball back after a missed free throw from East Troy with 19 seconds left on the clock. Kacie was fouled to stop the clock and made 1 of 2 free throws to put us up by 3. East Troy got the ball back with 10 seconds left to go but came up short on a layup giving us the win 59-56.
We play our Regional Final tonight (Saturday) against Wilmot at 6pm.
