Minden’s girls prevailed in a close contest at Valentine on January 8 edging the Lady Badgers 43-39. The Whippets stand at 10-1 and face a challenging week ahead hosting Ravenna on Tuesday, St. Cecilia on Thursday and travelling to McCook on Saturday.

Valentine outdid Minden in the first quarter but by halftime the Whippets had flipped the lead going up 22-20. 

Minden led by five heading to the fourth quarter and then points were suddenly at a premium. Holding a four-point lead with roughly ten seconds remaining, Kinsie Land knocked down two free throws to give the Whippets a two-possession cushion and the SWC win was secured.
