GBK: STM Remains Top Of The Class

GBK: STM Remains Top Of The Class

The St. Thomas More girls fell short of making the tournament a year ago after another successful campaign, but that has fueled them for success this season. The Lady Cavs are 10-1 and on top of class 'A'.

"We watched film from last year to see where we were at, the speed, and intensity we had then. Then at the beginning of the year we tried to take a step up from there. In our first 11 games I think that we have made that step up," STM Head Coach Brandon Kondolin said.

After beginning the season 10-0 STM fell to Crofton, NE at the Hanson Classic. The Lady Cavs will admit that may have been the best thing that could have happened.

"The Crofton game really helped bring to light some things that we need to work on as a team. We just need to get back on the right track and stay focused," STM Senior Guard Madison Kirsch said.

"That is something that again, we needed that. We needed to see where we are at by being tested against a team like that. I think they exposed some areas that we need to work on," Kondolin said.

STM is knocking off their opponents by an average of 35 points per contest this season thanks to leading scorers such as junior Alexys Swedlund and sophomore Ciara Duffy. However it's their three seniors that want to go out the way they started, on top.

"The drive needs to be a little bit stronger now, but I think we are doing good things and we are going in the right direction," Kondolin said.

"All of the ability is there and we definitely can get to state and we can win a state championship I believe," Kirsch said.

The Lady Cavaliers picked up a ? to ? win at Lead-Deadwood tonight. They will host 'AA's fourth ranked Sturgis next Tuesday.
