Well, with both Sully Buttes programs not being ‘quite’ as strong as a year ago, there are a bunch of teams in Region 2B that are battling for region honors, and perhaps, a run to the Round-of-16.
A big win last night for Mike Ring’s Lady Pirates….who improved to 5-4 on the season…
Highmore-Harrold (5-4): Oakley Jandreau racked up 22 points and 15 rebounds for a double-double, while Taylor Chavez tallied 13 points and Grace Knox finished with 12. Halle Tvedt pitched in nine boards. The Pirates play Hitchcock-Tulare in the 281 Conference tournament Monday in Huron.
That Hitchcock-Tulare game should be a dandy as the Lady Patriots are 3-5…someone is going on to the finals of the 281 tournament.
Herreid/Selby Area 44.125 7-1
Faulkton Area 43.750 6-2
Ipswich 43.250 6-2
Sully Buttes 42.750 5-3

School Spirit alive and well at Highmore/Harrold
Justin Bonnichsen’s Pirates are also having a solid season…Highmore/Harrold had a monstrous win on Thursday with a 77-64 win over a 6-3 Herreid/Selby Area team.
Only losses on the year to 8-2 Jones County, Kimball/White Lake 6-2 and 7-1 Sully Buttes. First game of the 281 tournament today against Hitchcock/Tulare….Keep an eye on this team…Big, deep and senior laden.
