Charger Girls Get Close, But Fall to Herreid/Selby Area Friday Night

Six foot tall sisters Jada and Jordyn Rossow were too much for the Sully Buttes Chargers frontcourt, and the Herreid Selby Area Wolverines held on for a 57-50 win Friday night in Herreid.

The Chargers kept within the 5-7 point range most of the night, and for a brief period, took the lead midway through the second half, but hot shooting by Katie Allbee down the stretch helped keep the Wolverines out of reach of the 2-2 Chargers.

Senior Jada Rossow finished with 19 points, while her sophomore sister scored 14 for the 2-0 Wolverines, while holding Sully Buttes to one shot and out as they cleared the boards all night long.  Freshman Allbee ended her night with 13 points.

And while Sully Buttes couldn’t stop the Rossow sisters low post play, the Wolverines had no answer for Charger captain Stevie Wittler, who once again dominated offensively, finishing with an incredible 34 points, and was the only Charger in double figures. 

Next up for the Sully Buttes girls is a doubleheader with the boys Thursday in Onida against Wolsey Wessington.  That is also the night that the Chargers home court is dedicated to the memory of former coach and teacher Mark Senftner, the four time girls state champion coach, along with two runner up finishes, and whose wife Lynn and son Scott are still teaching and contributing to future generations at ABO School.  You can catch the game on Country 95.3FM with coverage starting at 6:15PM.
