The Burns Lady Broncs were on the road all last week, starting the action in Mitchell, Neb. on January 10, where they fell 68-17.

The Lady Broncs rebounded on Friday with a 33-22 win over Glenrock, but fell 49-23 to Niobrara County on Saturday.

"Against Glenrock, it was a complete team win," said head coach Barry Ward. "The kids' effort was good, we just turned the ball over too many times but found a way to win. At Lusk, we just played really flat and could not find a way to get any traction."


Katie Norris and Brittani Wilson led Lady Bronc scoring with 10 points each. Madisyn Mirich had 4 points, Meghan Murphy had 3, Kelsey Faircloth, Morgan Griess and Erin Griess each had 2.

Norris led rebounds with three, followed by Madisyn Mirich and Faircloth, both with two and Jakobi Mirich, Cassidy Weibel, Korbin Liley and Brittani Wilson each had one.

Wilson led assists with three, while Norris, Malli O'Neal and Erin Griess had two and Morgan Griess and Madisyn Mirich each had one.
