Poor shooting costs G-H in Regional loss at Woodbury Central

MOVILLE - Galva-Holstein girls' basketball coach Ken Slater summed up his team's season-ending Regional tournament loss to host Woodbury Central Friday night succinctly.

"You are not going to be in too many ballgames shooting 20% from the field," said the former Cherokean, who also serves as the High School Principal at Galva-Holstein.

"This was a tough one for us," said Slater. "Woodbury Central came out firing on all cylinders, and got up on us early. We had a hard time getting going, and could never dig ourselves out of the hole. It was a disappointing game, but the girls can hold their heads high on how they finished the year and being District champs."

The Lady Pirates had no double-digit scorers in the WC loss. Brandi Wagoner led the team with eight points, and Heather Joslin and Alyssa Martin each scored six.

"We are looking forward to next year," said Slater, "and building on what we were able to accomplish this year."
