On Thursday, the Minden Lady Whippets hosted the Hastings St. Cecilia Lady Hawkettes at C.L. Jones Gymnasium in a state-rated battle.
The Lady Whippets entered the game having won three straight after their setbacks at the holiday tournament while St. Cecilia came into the contest off a loss to Grand Island Northwest earlier in the week.
Minden would get the better of St. Cecilia on its home court earning a hard-fought 11 point win, 46-35. The Whippets improve to 12-2 on the season.
Leading the Whippets in the scoring column were Brooke Kissinger with a team-high 15 points on five field goals (two threes) followed by Rebecca Stewart with 12 points on five field goals and 2/2 from the foul line.
