December 28, 2017
The Badger girls put up a tenacious fight today, but fell to Eagle Holiday Classic host West Valley High School in Spokane, as the 5-4 Eagles managed to grind out a 63-55 win in tournament play.

The Lady Badgers eked out a 19-16 lead in the first quarter, and the two teams tied in the second at 14 to give the Badgers a three point halftime lead, 33-30, but the Eagles outscored the Badgers 18-10 in the third to go into the final quarter up 48-43, then added three more points to their lead with a 15-12 fourth quarter.

Hailey Marlow scored 18 points to lead the Eagles and Badger Miranda Wenk led the Badger effort, also with 18 points. Kadi Bateman added 14 points for the Badgers.

The loss puts the Badgers at 7-2 in what's shaping up to be an exceptional season.
