The Minden Lady Whippets basketball team put their undefeated record to the test on December 17 when they hosted the Boone Central/Newman Grove Cardinals in a rematch of last year’s state tournament contest.
Last year the teams split with the Cardinals getting Minden in Albion early in the season but the Whippets were able to defeat Boone Central in the state tourney to advance to the C-1 title contest.
This time around Minden was able to break open a close contest after halftime for a convincing 68-39 win for the Class C-1 top-rated Whippets. Minden improved to 8-0 on the season.
Brooke and Jamie Kissinger continued their torrid shooting as of late combining for 49 points. Brooke Kissinger went off for a game-high 27 points including hitting eight three-pointers, five coming in Minden’s big second half scoring explosion.
Jamie Kissinger also reached double figures for Minden with 22 points including making four three-pointers and four two-point goals. Rebecca Stewart and Alaina Boudreau were close to hitting double-digits adding nine and eight points respectively.
