HOLCOMB — Facing one of their toughest tests of the season, the Southwestern Heights Lady Mustangs hit the road to Holcomb Friday night to face the state’s No. 6-ranked team. At No. 10, Southwestern Heights is no slouch, and they proved it Friday with a 47-44 win over the Lady Longhorns.
Heights (12-2) got off to a slow start, trailing 15-12 at the end of the first quarter. But a 19-5 run in the second put Heights in a comfortable 31-20 lead.
Heidi Brown scored nine of her 16 total points in the second and Whitney Garinger scored all of her 11 points in the first half.
But Holcomb is No. 6 for nothing, and turned the tables on Heights in the third quarter. The Lady Longhorns (13-3) went on an 11-4 run in the third, led by a pair of threes by Breanna Gottschalk. Gottschalk scored 19 points to lead Holcomb.
Ahead 35-31 entering the final frame, Heights got its act together, holding on for the 3-point win.
• The Mustang boys fell 74-40. Holcomb led 21-11 in the first and 41-22 at the half and never looked back.
