— After back-to-back losses, Santa Fe Trail coach Brenda Dahl is looking forward to a week off.

The Chargers' girls basketball team suffered a 51-44 loss to Sabetha Saturday in the third-place game of the Burlington tournament. Santa Fe Trail, which lost to Labette County in Friday's semifinals, won't play again until Feb. 4 at DeSoto.

"It'll be great for us," Dahl said. "It will give us time to reflect on some things. We have a ways to go if we're going to compete in sub-state. This tournament was great for us. We were excited to play quality teams. This gives us an idea what we have to do."

The Charger (9-3) struggled Saturday because senior center Melisa Ball was held to two points, 14 below her average.

Guard Lindsay Boss picked up some of the slack for SFT with a season-high 20 points.
