The Lady Wolverines are heading to the playoffs for the second year in a row!! Whitmire hosted Dixie Wednesday in a winner takes all (so to speak) game that would determine who finished 4th in the region and would get an invite into the state playoffs. The Lady Wolverines would be victorious despite not playing one of their better games. The girls were aggressive getting to the basket and were able to get to the foul line on numerous occasions and also helped to open the offense up. I am very proud of the girls and am excited they will have another opportunity to perform in the postseason.
Whitmire was lead in scoring by Alexus Sanders with 21 points. Kaylynn Roche followed with 6, Raegan Kendrick and Jordyn Brooks 3, and Samantha Strubeck, Chelsea Goggins, Ashelyn King, and Harleigh McLaren 2.
Kaylynn Roche lead the team in rebounding with 12. Ashelyn King, Alexus Sanders, Chelsea Goggins, and Raegan Kendrick added 6. Deja Livingston and Michelle Ruff had 3. Imari Brown and Leanna Eison added 2 and Harleigh McLaren 1.
The Lady Wolverines will play in the first round of the state playoffs on the road Monday, February 11th at 7:00 pm.
