Meade Girls March On
KSCB News - March 9, 2011 4:06 pm
Not many seven seeds in their sub state make it to the state tournament and feel they can win the whole thing. But that spirit exists in Meade where the 10-13 8th seeded Lady Buffs face top seed 20-3 Oxford Thursday at 3 p.m. at the 2A state tournament at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan. The Lady Buffs were 7-13 and the seven seed with a road game at Kinsley. They beat the Lady Coyotes on the road 47-46. That set up a rematch with Elkhart in Greenburg. The Lady Buffs took down Elkhart 63-62 in overtime. Then they pulled out the upset of the tournament so far beating second ranked Cimarron 49-48 to qualify for state. A late Tatum Hansen three pointer banked in for the win. Second year head coach Craig Batchman says the season may have turned when his team played mighty Southwestern Heights to a six point game in a loss. The Meade starters are seniors Kyre Larrabee, Britney Reimer, and Landry Cordes along with sophomore Kinzie Friesen and junior Tatum Hansen. Off the bench for the Lady Buffs are senior Jessica Thompson, juniors Lissa Crane and Taylor Cook along with sophomores Hannah Miller and Morgan Best. The seniors were guests during the Sportsguys Wednesday morning and coach Batchman will be a guest Thursday morning. The show airs weekday mornings between 7:37 and 9 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
We will post the interview with the senior girls soon.
