HOLSTEIN - Galva-Holstein coach Ken Slater felt that the Lady Pirates gave a "winning effort," and played a great game against Maple Valley/Anthon-Oto in Maple Valley Conference Tournament play last week, and he also commented on the "great atmosphere," and the crowd being "really into the game."
Unfortunately, G-H ended up on the short end of a 40-37 score, but Slater said his team is "really coming on, and it was probably our best night as far as taking care of the ball."
Slater said the game was "a tough one to lose, as we scored six more field goals than MVAO. We definitely lost the game on the free throw line, where we went 5-18 and they went 20-28."
Heather Joslin scored 15 points to lead Galva-Holstein in scoring, and also stole five MVAO passes. Brandi Wagoner had nine rebounds to lead the team on the boards.
Slater concluded by saying about his young team, "Despite the free throws, I am encouraged by where the team is going, and how much improvement they have made this season."
