Garden Girls Deliver First Half Knock Out Blow
KSCB News - February 24, 2010 12:00 am
Garden City’s girls team used a 17-0 and 19-1 run to build a 29-11 lead in rout to a 52-44 win over Liberal (11-8, 2-5) Tuesday night in the ‘Big House.’ Liberal rallied cutting the Garden lead to five with about forty seconds to play but missed too many shots down the stretch to get over the hump. Liberal head coach Shane Stout says the comeback was a dandy. “I’m not a moral victory type guy,” Stout said. “I hate to say we out-played them in the second half when we get down big like that. It’s not a moral victory but I am very proud of how we battled back.” Garden City is 12-8 overall and finishes 6-2 in the WAC. It’s the first winning season for the Garden girls since 1994 when current GCHS athletic director Bill Weatherly was head coach. Liberal travels to Dodge City Friday night for a 6 PM tip off.
