Community proud of fine girls players

Our Lady Prophets just concluded a tremendous basketball season with a stunning record of 27 wins and only 4 losses. In addition, the sophomore team won the conference with an undefeated record.  

Those teams represented their school and community in the highest quality of play and sportsmanship in all their games throughout the entire season. They had great senior leadership from Riley Walters, Cassie Riley and Molly Corbin and a great work ethic from the entire team.

They were tenacious in defense and quick and sure with their passing to offset the height disadvantage they often faced throughout the year. Don Robinson again did a great job of developing a game plan and preparing the Lady Prophets for each game.

The parents and fans were extremely loyal and supportive. Whether attending a home game or traveling to all the away games, the girls knew they had the support of the entire community.

While the season has ended, the memories of this outstanding team will linger. The communities of Prophetstown, Tampico and Lyndon should take great pride in those young athletes who represented the communities both on the court and in the classroom with distinction.

Good luck to the seniors in the future, and we look forward to our returning players taking the court again in 9 months. Well done, Lady Prophets.

Thank you to SVM sports for your coverage. Your great coverage of all area teams is the reason I subscribe to this newspaper.
