Red Hawk girls ousted in regional
The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau girls basketball team wrapped up their 2020-2021 season with a one-and-done performance in the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Regional tournament last Tuesday.
The Durand Panthers defeated the Red Hawks by a convincing margin, ending G-E-T’s bid in the Division Three Regional. G-E-T’s record fell to 4-5 including postseason play with the loss. They finished fifth in the Coulee Conference with a 4-2 record, as they were unable to play three in-conference games due to a COVID-19 quarantine.
Tuesday’s game was also the final for seniors Anna Puent, Jada Helmers, Claire Corcoran and Rachel Amoth.
Durand 76 G-E-T 40
The sixth-seeded Red Hawks were unable to contain the third-seeded Panthers on the road in Durand Tuesday night.
G-E-T fell behind 38-22 by halftime, and were outscored by 20 in the second half as Durand pulled away.
Lindsey Lettner was the team’s lone double-digit scorer with 15 points. Following her in scoring were Amoth’s seven points, with five each from Kayli Bratberg and Kylie Schmitz, three from Puent, two each from Avali Bratberg and Helmers and one from Genna O’Neill rounding out the team scoring.
