Fri 1-23-2015 []

The Okoboji girls fell on the road Thursday night in a non-conference battle with Emmetsburg. The E-Hawks jumped out to a 10-4 lead by the end of the first quarter and held a 20-16 lead at half. In the third quarter, Okoboji began to close the gap, but a late run by Emmetsburg built the lead up to 11 points at the end of the quarter, 34-23. At the final buzzer, the E-Hawks finished off the upset with a 48-34 win.

Emmetsburg's defense honed in on Okoboji's three leading scorers, allowing less than 10 points combined from Megan Peschong, Molly Mitchell, and Emily Wintz. Offensively, Ashton Connelly had a great night with 24 points en route to victory. Shaelyn Adams led the Okoboji Pioneers with 11 points.
