GBK: Sturgis Scoops Up Third Spot In 'AA' Poll

GBK: Sturgis Scoops Up Third Spot In 'AA' Poll
STURGIS, SD -

The latest KELO ESPN 99.1 KBHB high school basketball polls were released today and the biggest jump came from the Lady Scoopers. In three weeks they went from unranked to third and they don't plan on slowing down.

The Scoopers have built on the momentum they created last year when they finished eighth in the state tournament. They have the luxury of returning four of their five starters from that tourney team and it shows in their 7-1 record.

"I feel really good about this season. Our team had a bit of a rough start in the beginning just getting back into things, but it is nice having four of our starters back from last year," Sturgis Senior Guard Kahlie Peterson said.

Two of those seniors are Lynsey Prosser and Kahlie Peterson. The two guards are averaging 34 of their 49 points per contest and their coach loves it.

"We have pretty good quickness. We are guard oriented, so we don't have a flat out post up girl that we can throw down in the block and get easy baskets. We have to rely on our shooting. We have to move the ball around and get kids to shoot it," Sturgis Head Coach Mike Friedel said.

Sturgis has had only one slip up this season and that was a six point loss at unbeaten St. Thomas More. But the Scooper rallied back two games later to hand undefeated Pine Ridge their first and only loss.

"It was a big win going down to Pine Ridge and finding out some matchups. We had to get matched up with them and I thought we defended and stayed in front of them. We didn't give them open shots and that was the key," Friedel said.

For coach Friedel the key for his team isn't just reaching the state tournament and playing in the first round on Thursday night, it's being prepared to play on Friday.

"Our goal isn't to get there it is to win a game. Our goal right now is to get to Friday night, that is everybody's goal, but get to the semi finals. We have to be prepared to get there. Nobody is going to wish us in and we don’t have a free ticket," Friedel said.”

The Scoopers will return to action Thursday night when they welcome in Rapid City Central.
