By Staff | Jan 26, 2008

GRAETTINGER — The Graettinger/Terril girls basketball team ran into a buzzsaw taking on Class 1A No. 14 North Sentral Kossuth on Friday.

The visiting Eagles, who just returned to the top 15 in Class 1A in Thursday’s ratings by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, led the entire way in a 63-26 win over the Knights.

“We played an outstanding state-rated team in NSK,” said G/T coach Roger Conway. “Our G/T girls gave a solid effort, but did not execute well at the offensive end.”

The Knights trailed 16-7 after one quarter, 31-12 at halftime and 49-22 after three quarters.

Theresa Petersen led G/T with 16 points while Malorie Girres had six and Leah Flaharty and Tasha Neilson each had two.

G/T (4-11, 2-5, 2-5) hosts Ruthven-Ayrshire on Tuesday.
