On Friday, February 8th, the Meridian Mustangs arrived at Silver Lake’s home court to take on the Lady Mustangs on Senior Night.

When the third quarter started up, Silver Lake came out with the same momentum they had in the first half. The third quarter score was Silver Lake- 9 Meridian- 11. As the fourth quarter began, Silver Lake knew they needed to gain a few more points to beat Meridian. It was a tough quarter for our Lady’s as they only scored 10 more points on them, not scoring enough to win the game. The final score for the game was Silver Lake- 38 Meridian-42. Skupa led the team with 18 points and Trausch led the team with 11 rebounds total. Skupa shared her thoughts about the game, “We came out with a good mentality and executed as Drake told us to. Meridian just hit more shots and we couldn’t make up for it when it came to the end.” Katelyn Karr also shared her thoughts about the game, “It was a good matchup, we both played very hard. But in the end, our shots weren’t falling as theirs were.”
