Hill carries FSHS girls hoops past Lions, 43-40

kujayfan you must be reading different posts.... there aren't many on her that criticize the officials (mom has mentioned it bu it doesn't look to me like anyone else has even said that played a role). So don't generalize and say YOU GUYS when you actually mean one poster. In my opinion there have been many posts that have commented on positive play on BOTH sides.

Hepburn.... thanks for he clarification on the freshman issue. I thought my OLD memory served me right and that others had played as well.

agree with you there mom.... Weibe really stepped up and did the little things that FS needed to win. Was surprised myself that she wasn't even mentioned in the article. On the LHS side I would say the same for Potter. She hit two big shots late in the game that kept their chances alive and also came up big on the defensive end. These two kids have been overshadowed all year by the "bigger" names... it would have been nice for the LJWorld to mention these seniors who I felt stepped up big for their teams as well don't ya think?

Firebirds’ offense comes alive in win

this game brings out the worst in BOTH student sections. Granted LHS' won the top prize for that last night. But don't kid yourself Ribman.... FS' has been equally "bad" in the past.

My issue is WHY is the LJWorld reporting on that? Seems to me that reporting on it is actually encouraging it.... Where is Matt Tait?

on an extra note.... GREAT atmosphere. Can't beat the "jungle" for a rival game! The energy in that place is amazing!

also.... LJWorld you got it wrong. Kirkpatrick might be the first freshman of the era to play in this game but definitely not the first freshman to play in the showdown. It's been quite a few years but I do know that Dani May played (and made an impact) and so did Katie Rhoades (actually if my memory serves me right there might have been a group of freshman that played that year). Worth looking into....

Just this fans opinion but I'd say the LJWorld got it right. Props go to Hill as she DID play her best game of her career... lhs seemed to have no answer for her throughout most of the game. Minus an early outburst she even managed to keep her emotions under control (which has always been an issue in the rival game - aka flipping off the crowd incident in last years game). Offensively, lhs often answered themselves but looked like they played tight in the 4th quarter, missed important basekts, and had a horrible last possession of the game. Bad call or not at the end lhs put themselves in that situation by not giving themselves a chance to score in the last 40 seconds. Too much dribbling and no organization as to who would take the big shot.... for a team that carries a group of seniors with so much experience it is a little disappointing.

Senior McCray tears ACL, out for season

Danielle you still have a great career ahead of you at the next level.... the people we need to feel sorry for are the other players and the staff that now have to revamp after losing their top two players. Hang in the Bonnie... we still believe in you and these hawks. You have won games with less in the past (let us not forget how much this program has changed since she took over). I'll be pulling for you.

Southwest ninth-grader opens the door for all freshmen to join high school sports teams

come on now firebird... kennedy is a great player and she definitely fills a roll that FS needs (perimeter scoring and ball handling) but I don't think they become a state contender. There is just too much involved in that and this team has underachieved all year. Don't think adding a freshmen is going to change that.

dmarti... good point that these select few kids have been playing with the free state team at the high school for the last few years (in leagues and open gyms). I do believe they could possibly make this change without messing the team "mojo" and I'm sure FS's bigs are excited to have some guards that can release some to the pressure on them. I don't however agree that LHS is wrong in choosing to NOT do this. With just a few weeks left in the season I doubt Coach Wood is concerned about "the future".... I'm assuming he will spend his last weeks preparing for each game and trying to improve with the season ahead. Don't make the mistake thinking this is about the future. This is about THIS season. Coach Duncan just wants a guard to go with his D-1 posts.
