The varsity girls played a tough game against the Bulldogs.

Improving on their defense, the Lady Terriers were able to prevent Ekalaka from driving the lane and scoring easy layups.
Individual scores were as follows: Amy Browning-15, Carly Stickel-11, Franque Robertson-9, Dani Dukart-7, Anna Fredrickson-3, and Amanda Haidle-3.
The Lady Terriers completely dominated the Mustangs in first half action. Using a strong inside game, led by Amy Browning, the Terriers were able to find good positions around the basket, drawing fouls and going to the line, according to head coach Sharilyn Kortum.
“(She) was able to outplay their post players,” Kortum said of Browning. 
A Terrier scoring drought during second half action, enabled the Mustangs to draw within one point before the Lady Terriers were able to put the game away.
