Lady Jays cap season with 11-10 record

Sabetha’s Lady Jays advanced to the semi-final round of Sub-State last Friday, March 2, and met a familiar foe — the Nemaha Central Thunder. Sabetha fought well in their regular season match-ups against N.C. and battled once again for a chance to make it to the finals. A slow start put Sabetha behind, and the Thunder would outlast the Jays in the end 48-36.

Turnovers plagued the Bluejays in the opening frame, and N.C. took advantage — jumping out to a 10-0 lead. Morgan Schuette helped narrow the gap with a pair of buckets for 4 points with Melinna Schumann adding a bucket. Sabetha trailed 13-6 at the end of one.

Schumann had three triples in the second quarter, Skylar McAfee had an old fashioned three-point play, and Hillary Krebs added two free throws in the effort. The Jays would claw their way back into the game pulling within 3 points, 21-18 with two minutes left in the half. But N.C. led at the break 27-20.

“I am really proud of how we defended, rebounded and fought back,” said Head Coach Alex McAfee.

The Lady Jays struggled to get a shot off against the Thunder man defense in the third quarter and were outscored 10-5. Schumann added a bucket and free throw in the period, and S. McAfee had 2 points on a lay-in. N.C. stretched a 12-point lead, 37-25 headed into the home stretch.

The Thunder went on a 9-0 run to start the final stanza to give them a more comfortable lead. The Bluejays struggled from the stripe as well hitting just three of nine in the final period. Brooklyn Bauman buried a pair of triples late in the game, and S. McAfee had the only other bucket for the Jays.

Sabetha fell to Nemaha Central in the end 48-36 and finished the season 11-10 overall with an 8-7 mark in the Big Seven. Schumann finished the game with 14 points while S. McAfee chipped in 7 points in the effort.

“We fought with everything that we had for 32 minutes, but just lost to a good team,” Coach McAfee said.
