BEATRICE - The Johnson County Central Lady Thunderbirds went into the Class B Mudecas Basketball Tournament last week as the #4 seed.

JCC vs. HTRS

The Lady Thunderbirds faced the #5 seeded Humboldt Table Rock Steinauer Lady Titans in opening action on Monday, January 7th, but lost by a 46-58 score.

Head Coach Karen Hunzeker commented, “This was our most disappointing game of the season. We went into the locker room at halftime up by 10. We were hitting shots and playing good defense. Then the wheels fell off the cart. They put some pressure on us and we had several turnovers going into the 3rd quarter. HTRS capitalized on those turnovers. We also went cold with our shooting. We shot 27% from the field the 3rd quarter and 20% the 4th while HTRS shot 54% from the field in the 3rd quarter and 50% the 4th. We just could not stop their sophomore Kaitlyn Glather who ended up with 31 points.”
