Girls’ basketball

On Tuesday, Feb. 9, the South Summit girls’ basketball team won at Rowland Hall 50-19. Caitlin Hatch led the way for the Ladycats with 19 points. This game was special because both teams were playing for breast cancer awareness. Both teams warmed up in pink-and-black "Swing For Life" shirts. The teams entered the dark gym wearing pink cowboy hats and holding pink glow sticks as they formed a pink ribbon on the floor. During the game, many different items were auctioned off, with all proceeds going towards the cause. Also, a silent auction took place throughout the game, where anything from team pictures to signed basketballs was being sold. There was a board where the players could write the name of someone who has suffered from cancer or is suffering from cancer, to honor them while they played. Lots of money was raised for this very special cause.

On Thursday, Feb. 11, playing at Maeser Prep, the Ladycats won 57-13. Senior captains Lexie Reidhead and Caitlin Hatch led the team with 19 points and 12 points, respectively.

The Ladycats finished Region 14 play in second place and will play this Friday, Feb. 19, at Southern Utah University against the Region 15 fourth-place team, Grand, at 8 p.m.
