Wellman-Union's girls hoops squad wrapped up their winter season with a home defeat Tuesday night.
The Lady Wildcats suffered a 40-45 loss to O'Donnell. They were 4-10 through district and 6-19 overall
The Lady Wildcats wrapped up a 4-10 season with their O’Donnell loss. They traded leads a few times and scored fairly evenly with the Lady Eagles in the first half, but missed shots and turnovers had them down by the double digits by the third quarter.
They narrowed their deficit to three the last minute of the game, but an O’Donnell bucket and free throw with just seconds remaining diminished much chance of a comeback.
"It didn’t end as well as we would have had it, but it was fun,” said Head Coach Todd Ellis. "The girls played hard for four quarters and tried to get the win. I think it will be a game to build on for next year.”
Senior Tori Browne led the Lady ‘Cats with 14, followed by Rosa Olivas with 10.
