Southwestern Heights Girls Gain Fans in Hutchinson

KSCB News - March 16, 2009 12:00 am

The Southwestern Heights girls basketball team has always been an easy team to cheer for in Plains and Kismet. Barry Melen’s teams have basically shut down the two communities throughout the years when they play at state due to all the fans who have followed them to Hutchinson or Manhattan. But the Lady Mustangs gained even more fans this weekend. The Lady Mustangs won the 3-a state title beating Wichita Collegiate 65-59 Saturday. After they won the title, they displayed teamate Cory Sigala’s jersey over the championship trophy. Her father Roberto Sigala passed away in a farming accident last week after her younger brother Tony Sigala passed away earlier this year. After an article about the tragedy ran in the Hutch News last week, the Hutchinson Trinity athletic department donated what was described to KSCB News as a couple of thousand dollars to the Sigala family. Many fans of other high schools also cheered for the Lady Mustangs in the state title game.
