Regular Season announcements and schedule
11/28  @ Liberty 7th W 41-20; 1-0  8th W 33-16; 1-0

The Plains Lady Firebirds 7th grade team started its season off with an impressive road victory over district rival Liberty last night.  The final score was 41-20.  Chance Gray led the Firebirds with 14 points, while Kylee Simmons chipped in 9 and Beri Ngwa scored 6.  The Firebirds took an 11-point lead into halftime and would extend that margin to as many as 25 points in the 4th quarter.  The girls look to improve their record to 2-0 tonight against Mason White.

The last time our Plains 8th grade girls basketball team played Liberty it was for the 7th Grade GMC Championship back in February.  Points were at a premium in the 1st half as our girls took a 12 to 6 advantage heading into halftime.  After a quick pep talk, they hustled out and took control early in the 2nd half outscoring the Thunderhawks 20 to 10 and securing their season opener by defeating Liberty for the 3rd time in two seasons by a score of 33 – 16.  Kailyn Dudukovich lead all scorers with 19 points followed by Abby Oehler with 4 points, Taylor Webber with 3 points, Leah Abribat with 2 points, Bella Hagan with 2 points, and Amanda Miller with 2 points.

Both girls teams will get right back at it tonight as they host the Mason Comets in their home opener.  The 7th grade game will begin at 4:30 followed by the 8th grade game at 5:45pm.

11/29 Mason White 7th W 48-8; 2-0  8th W 37-24; 2-0

The Lakota Plains 7th Grade Lady Firebirds improved their record to 2-0 with a convincing 48-8 victory over Mason White.  The Firebirds never trailed in this one and held the Comets to three points or less in every quarter.  Chance Gray led a balanced attack with 16 points.  Keena Benzinger and Kendall Forren each scored 7, Kylee Simmons had 6, and Lora Broz, Riley Troth, and Bella Gallo chipped in with 4 points apiece.  The ladies will attempt to improve to 3-0 on Tuesday at home against Fairfield Red.

The Plains 8th grade Lady Firebirds needed a full 4 quarter effort to turn back a physically pesky Mason team to maintain their unblemished record.  A 26-12 advantage would improve only slightly as the girls grabbed the win by a score of 37 to 24.  Kailyn Dudukovich lead all scorers with 14 points followed closely by Maddie Prohaska with a season high 10 points.  Sydney Jones and Leah Abribat would each score 4 points, Amanda Miller added 3 points, while Savanah Conlin added 2 points.

Coach Mueller, Coach Gleim, and all the girls players would like to thank their teachers, friends and cheerleaders for attending last nights’ game and giving us a true home court advantage. Both girls teams will be off the rest of this week in anticipation of hosting Fairfield Red on Tuesday December 6th

 12/6 Fairfield Red 7th W 61-7; 3-0  8th W 50-19; 3-0

The 7th Grade Girls basketball team pushed their record to 3-0 yesterday with a decisive 61-7 win over Fairfield yesterday.  The Lady Firebirds led 40-7 after the 2nd quarter and did not allow a single point in the 2nd half.  Chance Gray led a very balanced attack with 17 points and Kylee Simmons had 15.  It was a great all-around effort from all 12 ladies.

The Plains 8th grade team exploded out of the gates last night with a powerful first quarter which resulted in a 20 to 1 lead after only 6 minutes of play.  11 of the 12 girls who saw action last night would contribute to the win whick improved their record to 3-0 on the season as they downed the Indians 50 to 19.  Kailyn Dudukovich would lead all scorers with a season high 24 points.  Sydney Jones scored 6 points, Abby Oehler with 4 points while Savannah Conlin, Lauryn Nutt, Taylor Webber, Bella Hagan, Leah Abribat, Kylie Kennedy, Amanda Miller, & Emma Epphinghoff each added 2 points.

Both girls teams will look to improve to 4-0 on the season tomorrow night as they travel to Lakota West High School to play in our annual Best in the West Showdown with Lakota Ridge.  7th grade game will start at 5pm followed by the 8th grade game at 6:15pm.  Hope to see you all there

12/8 @ Ridge (Lakota West) 7th L 33-27; 3-1  8th W 48-25; 4-0

The 7th grade girls basketball team lost a hard-fought battle to Ridge last night, 33 to 27.  It was a back and forth game that was tied late in the 4th quarter before Ridge pulled ahead.  Kylee Simmons led Plains with 10 points, followed by Chance Gray with 8, Keena Benzinger with 6, and Lora Broz with 3.

The 8th grade Lady Firebirds got out to an early lead and never looked back defeating their cross-township rivals 48 to 25 and remain unbeaten on the season at 4-0.  Nine different girls would score in this game lead by Kailyn Dudukovich who lead all scorers with a new season high 26 points followed by Bella Hagan with 6 points.  Kylie Kennedy with 4 points, Maddie Prohaska with 3 points, Taylor Webber, Amanda Miller, Jessica Rush, and Emma Eppinghoff each added 2 points, while Sydney Jones wrapped up the scoring with 1 point.

The girls will take a little break from competition before they travel over to the west side to take on the Colerain Cardinals next Thursday.

12/15 @ Colerain  7th W 37-17; 4-1  8th W 50-8; 5-0

The 7th grade girls basketball team upped their record to 4 wins against just 1 loss as they defeated a solid Colerain team 37-17.  The Lady Firebirds won every quarter, including a decisive 15 to 6 3rd quarter which effectively put the game out of reach.  Kylee Simmons led the Firebirds with 11 points.  Lora Broz had 8 while Chance Gray and Beri Ngwa each contributed 6 points to the winning effort.

The 8th grade Lady Firebirds would take control of their contest early and often taking a 15 to 4 lead by the end of 1st quarter.  Our defense would prove to be too much for the Cardinals as we held them scoreless in the 2nd quarter while extending our lead by 12 points heading into halftime. Colerain could only manage an additional 4 points in the 2nd half as our Plains girls team extended their win streak to 25 wins with a 50 to 8 road victory.  All 12 girls would score in this game lead by Leah Abribat with 9 points followed closely by Sydney Jones & Maddie Prohaska each with 8 points.  Other scorers were Bella Hagan with 5 points, Lauryn Nutt with 4 points, Jessica Rush & Emma Eppinghoff each with 3 points, while Savannah Conlin, Taylor Webber, Kylie Kennedy, Abby Oehler & Amanda Miller all scored 2 points.

Coach Mueller, Coach Gleim, and the entire girls basketball program would like to say one final thank you and good luck to Savannah Conlin who played her final game in a Firebird uniform last night.  We wish her all the best and we will miss you. 

The girls teams are off for the holidays and will return to game action on Tuesday, January 3rd when they will travel to Wilson to take on the Knights.  

1/3 @ Wilson 7th W 47-34; 5-1  8th W 50-19; 6-0

The Lakota Plains Lady Firebirds kicked off the new year with two solid victories last night as they travelled to Hamilton to take on the Wilson Knights.

The Plains 7th Grade Lady Firebirds upped their record to 5-1 on Tuesday evening with a 47-34 victory over a tough Wilson team.  Chance Gray caught fire in the second half, scoring 15 of her game and season-high 26 points which was highlighted by 6 three pointers.  Kylee Simmons chipped in 7, Bella Gallo had 4, Morgan Wehby had 3, Liz Key, Lora Broz, and Brynae Dangerfield each had 2, and Keena Benzinger tossed in one point.

The Plains 8th grade Lady Firebirds jumped out to a very quick lead using a stifling full court press to stymie the Knights into several turnovers and holding them scoreless in the first quarter.  The rest of the game would look very much the same as our Firebirds would maintain their two-year unbeaten record and cruise to their first win of the new year by a score of 50 to 19.  Kailyn Dudukovich would lead all scorers with 20 points followed by Maddie Prohaska with 11 points, Sydney Jones with 7 points, Bella Hagan with 4 points, Leah Abribat & Amanda Miller with 3 points, and Emma Eppinghoff with 2 points.

The girls are back at home tomorrow night when they will host the Delhi Eagles.

The Lakota Plains 7th Grade Lady Firebirds dropped a heartbreaker to Sycamore last night.  Despite a valiant effort in the 4th quarter the Aviators were able to hold us off and take away a 4-point victory.

The Plains 8th grade Lady Firebirds got off to a slow start but quickly gained control of the game outscoring our guests nine points and taking a 20-11 advantage into halftime.  The 2nd half would prove to be more of the same as they cruised to their 7th win of the season and maintained their perfect record at 7-0 beating Sycamore by a score of 39 to 21.  Kailyn Dudukovich would lead all scorers with 24 points followed by Sydney Jones with 8 points, Leah Abribat with 3 points, while Bella Hagan and Emma Eppinghoff each scored 2 points.
