No. 1 Seed BMS Lady Bobcats completed their Cinderella season and took home the QVJC Large School Girls Basketball Championship with a convincing 52-30 win over the Thompson Tigers Last Night in Griswold!!

The Varsity Lady Bobcats took home the Championship hardware last night after the high spirited send- off from the School Pep Rally yesterday afternoon.   The Lady Bobcats finished the season a perfect 12-0 and are the 2018 QVJC Girls Large Division Basketball Champions.  Last night they played the No.2 seeded Thompson Tigers.  The contest was tight early with a 10-10 score at the end of the first quarter.  The Bobcats pulled away by 11, 28-17 with a pressure, pressing defense and fast break basketball.   They continued the pressure defense and fast break play into the third quarter leading by 17 points after three quarters, 41-24 and finished with patient play in the fourth quarter to maintain the lead and garner the Win.  

The Bobcats were led by Emma Carpenter, 22 points and Aurissa Boardman, 19 points.  Thompson was led by Brianna Mead with 20 points.  Bobcats Aila Gutierrez played pressure defense on Mead all night to keep her in check.  Bobcats Ella Davis and Liz Lovrien each pulled down 10 rebounds apiece and protected the basket and led the Bobcats in the paint.  

The 2018 QVJC Basketball Championship is the first for the Lady Bobcats since 2012.  And based on the strength of the anticipated returning players, next year's Team is the pre-season favorite to repeat in 2019.    

Head Coach Gutierrez is extremely proud of the team and program as the Girls came every day to work hard, advance their skill levels and WIN.  It was truly a rare and special year.  

Thank You Bobcat Nation!!
