Axtell met up with Red Cloud in the D2-4 district championship game on February 23 at Adams Central. The Lady Warriors were the ones celebrating a state tournament berth with a 60-35 defeat of the Lady Cats, ending Axtell’s season at 14 wins 11 losses. The game was also the last appearance for five seniors—Paige Kirby, Madisen Eckhoff, Katrina Clubb, Caitlin Callan and Emme Nickel. During the four years these girls were part of the basketball program, the Cats had records of 20-6, 19-7, 19-5 and 14-11 for a composite of 72-29. It was the sixth straight winning season.
The first quarter was intense and evenly well-played. Axtell had a lead, its last of the game, of 15-13 at 2:22. Neither team scored again in the period until Red Cloud’s Mary Nibbe canned a 35-footer at the horn giving the Warriors a 16-15 lead. Kirby drilled two threes in the quarter while Callan knocked down a two and a three. Nibbe scored 11 for RC.
