The Sterling Lady Jets girls basketball team played well at times but not long enough in last Thursday night’s Class D2 State Basketball game with Humphrey St. Francis. The seventh seeded Lady Jets fell to the 23-2 second seeded Flyers 60-53.

“Well, we knew coming into the game that we were facing one of the best players in the state if not the best player in the state,” said Josh Pfeiffer, the Jets’ head girls basketball coach. “We wanted to try to take them out of their transition game. We realized, that it is not possible to take them entirely out of their transition game. The best that you can do is slow them down and we think that we did that.

Sterling Lady Jets Claim Class D2-7 District Championship

The Sterling Lady Jets will advance to the Girls State Basketball Tournament in Lincoln this Thursday, March 5 with a 20-7 record. They will face Humphrey St. Francis, which has a 25-2 record, at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Southwest High School.

Sterling’s Head Coach Josh Pfeiffer said the Lady Jets’ main focus will be to slow down Humphrey St. Francis’ Allison Weidner, a 5’9” junior who has been recruited to play basketball at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. In addition, the Lady Jets also want to prevent her other teammates from scoring as well.

“I am proud of these girls for the way they were able to come back. We were down by nine in the fourth quarter 31-22, and based on how we were scoring the ball, it seemed pretty unlikely we would be able to complete this comeback. We just kept fighting and searching for opportunities to make plays.”
