Varsity Squads Split @ Buhler Tuesday...

Create: 02/08/2017 - 05:03

It was CRUSADERS vs CRUSADERS Tuesday evening as Buhler hosted Wellington in "5 1/2 " games of basketball. Wellington's Lady Crusaders would win with relative ease and advance their season record to 11-4. Balanced scoring, stifling defense including "3" steals by Lauryn Snipes and awesome board work with Tayland French just missing a double-double on the evening...it was Wellington all the way in this one! In the other "4 1/2" games (C Girls Game was only 2 qtrs), the outcomes not as good. Buhler has a tradition rich basketball program and for the most part Tuesday, they demonstrated it.
